The Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center features 25 miles of trails including a hike to the 1,100-foot summit of Northfield Mountain, and a portion of the Metacomet-Monadnock Trail which travels from the Connecticut state line to Mount Monadnock in New Hampshire. In winter, trails are groomed for cross-county skiing and snowshoeing and along with fresh, crisp air; you can warm up by an outdoor fire and snack bar. Rock climbers will love the thrilling variety of routes and cliffs at Rose Ledge, or just relax with a picnic or enjoy a seasonal riverboat cruise. The land is owned by First Light which operates a hydroelectricity facility and offers environmental and recreation programs at the Visitor Center.
