This unique natural area is the result of glacial activity.

Boulder Field Trail offers access to the unique area known as Boulder Field where large 30-foot boulders are strewn about. The glacial remnant area is an easy hike once you find the trailhead off Nottingham Road. You'll begin near a marsh which sometimes floods over into the road during spring thaws. The trail leading to the boulder area is at the far end of the marsh. You may notice white triangles which is actually marking a trail to a 70-foot granite ridge where rock climbers enjoy doing their thing. Once you reach the boulder strewn area, you can't help but explore and examine the interesting rocks. You may also wish to hike a small trail which heads north out of the boulder area leading to Devil's Den. The hike at this point becomes somewhat challenging but the small caves at the terminus are worth a view. You will also see more wetland. Retrace your steps back to your vehicle.

Directions: From Deerfield, NH, Travel east on Nottingham Road about 3.4 miles southeast of Deerfield Parade. Look for a dirt road on the right (south) side of the road. Travel a .25 mile to a very small parking area. The trail begins there. Four-wheel drives may continue on.
