Distant Hill Gardens and Distant Hill Nature Trail consist of one-hundred and fifty-five acres of biodiverse forest, fields, and wetlands straddling the town-line separating Walpole and Alstead. You will find us in the hills, five miles east of downtown Walpole, New Hampshire.
Distant Hill is an environmental and horticultural learning center dedicated to inspiring and empowering children and adults to cultivate an intimate connection to the natural world through education and observation. We hope to inspire visitors to develop an ecological approach to working their land and to give them the tools to improve their landscape one plant at a time.
Or goal is to have visitors to Distant Hill leave with a better understanding of the vital connections between plants, animals, and humans, and how we can use
Earth’s resources in a way that strengthens and sustains those connections.
Distant Hill was listed as one of the Top 10 Places to Visit in New Hampshire!
