More directions and information

With more than 3,000 acres of rolling terrain, Notchview offers an idyllic escape for winter sport enthusiasts, especially cross-country skiers looking for a brisk outing. Much of the reservation is above 2,000 feet, with Judges Hill the highest point at 2,297 feet - which results in snow on our trails for more than 80 days each year. Look for tracks of deer, moose, and snowshoe hare as you ski along. Chickadees, barred owls, and pileated woodpeckers live in the forest year-round.
