Property Description


Trues Brook Natural Area comprises 2 acres. 



In 1998, local efforts succeeded in the City's acquisition of this parcel, as well as the permanent protection via a conservation easement with the Upper Valley Land Trust.  The location is the site of some of the earliest mills in Lebanon, including Hucken Storr’s mill, and later the Hinkley Mill.  

Features & Access

The True's Brook gorge drops some 50 feet in elevation along 700 linear feet of shoreline, including three dramatic overlooks, and a long-popular local swimming hole.  There is a variety of aquatic, riparian, and upland species sharing this relatively small area.  The property contains a nondescript trail that descends through the woods to the dramatic True's Brook, which drains much of southwest Lebanon.  Visitors should exercise caution near the edge 

The property is located along Trues Brook Road, with a parking area available to accommodate visitors.
