Update Regarding the Tin Mountain Field Station in Jackson: In accordance with the wishes of the landowner, Tin Mountain Conservation Center (TMCC) would like to make all users aware that the privately-owned driveway extending above the Field Station to Grand Junction is no longer open to the public. Access to Grand Junction and the trails beyond is still available on the Rockwell Path originating at the parking lot.
The Jackson Field Station is situated on 228 acres and located on Rockwell Road via Tin Mine Road in the town of Jackson, NH. The summit of Tin Mountain lies at the center of the property that contains the first known tin mines in North America. An adit and several pits remain from this period. In addition, there are several old stone cellar holes and the old Jackson-to-Dundee Town Road. Tin Mountain Conservation Center’s founder Barbara Rockwell Henry and her husband David Henry lived in the family home on the property until 1991. The Tin Mountain Field Station building, built in 1981, is used for programs and summer camp. An extensive hiking/snowshoe trail network accesses the 17 acres of fields, 211 acres of forest, and four ponds on the property. Major forest types include red spruce/balsam-fir and northern hardwoods.
