Jackson Field Station

Update Regarding the Tin Mountain Field Station in Jackson: In accordance with the wishes of the landowner, the privately-owned driveway extending above the Field Station to Grand Junction is no longer open to the public.  Grand Junction and the trails beyond are accessible via Rockwell Path that starts at the parking lot. Thank you for respecting these guidelines to keep this area open to the public.

Located on 228 acres off of Tin Mine Road in Jackson, NH, the Jackson Field Station was the home of Tin Mountain Founder, Barbara Rockwell Henry and her husband David Henry.  Barbara founded Tin Mountain Conservation Center in 1980 and lived at the Jackson property until her death in 1991.  In addition to providing housing to our resident caretake, the Field Station Building, constructed in 1981, also serves as the center of the Jackson summer day camp and welcomes nature program participants. An extensive trail network weaves through the Field Station’s 228 acres of forests and fields.  Trails take hikers to the summit of the actual Tin Mountain, which sits at the center of the property and offers great views of surrounding peaks.  The Jackson Field Station is also home to one of the first known tin mines in North American. Although the mine never yielded much tin, the entrance and several pits remain to be explored.  Stone cellar holes and the old Jackson-to-Dundee Road are all that remain from the first colonial settlers who called this area home.  The Jackson Field Stations boasts four ponds and forests of red spruce and balsam-fir as well as northern hardwoods making this a beautiful spot to hike and enjoy the natural world.
