Madison Boulder Forest would make a great recreational retreat or second home location with the White Mountains as a scenic backdrop. The forest is located in the rolling foothills of New Hampshires White Mountains, just a few miles east of the National Forests Mount Chocorua Scenic Area, whose granite-domed peak commands the western skyline. The parcel directly abuts the Madison Boulder Natural Area, a 17-acre state-managed park and home to an enormous glacial erratic.
One of the most compelling natural features of the forest is the prominent ridge in the southern portion. Accessible by foot only, the west side of this ridge offers a sweeping view of Mount Chocorua, Silver Lake and several peaks to the north. This is a great place to hike and enjoy the view year round. A brook crosses through the upper third of the parcel, cascading over a rocky bed and creating small waterfalls as it threads its way through the forest. The brook eventually drains into Davis Pond, just a short distance east of the property. The soils and terrain on the upper two thirds of the parcel and either side of the interior road in the lower third appear conducive to building.
The forest supports a mix of eastern hemlock, white pine and a variety of hardwoods with good stem quality and a pole to small sawlog diameter distribution. Red oak dominates the hardwood species mix, followed by sugar maple, red maple and birch, generally in that order of quantity.
The forest was thinned within the past year, leaving an even distribution of trees across two thirds of the property. In the lower half of the property, west of the prominent ridge, a patch cut was conducted, leaving saplings and pole-size stems, and opening up an outstanding view of Mount Chocorua and other distant peaks in White Mountain National Forest. From a wildlife habitat perspective, the opening will encourage browse for deer and moose.
