Weekends only, see site for dates. Popular maple tours are back at The Rocks Estate, a 1,400-acre property owned by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests. Reservations are recommended. Discover the history of maple sugaring, participate in the process of tapping trees and making syrup, enjoy horse-drawn wagon rides through the scenic Rocks property and taste maple sugar treats. Visitors learn how to identify the sugar maple trees that produce the sweet sap for making syrup, hear the history of maple sugaring, and see part of the process demonstrated at the on-site New Hampshire Maple Experience. The Experience is housed in a renovated historic building, which features a working sugar house and museum featuring a collection of sugaring artifacts. For those looking to turn the springtime maple experience into a weekend-long north country stay, The Rocks collaborates with local inns to offer weekend vacation packages.
(Dates are weekends only, see website for details) Join us for guided tours of our sugaring operation including horse drawn and tractor drawn rides, tap a maple tree with the group, tree id, the history of mapling, attend a chef demo about cooking with maple, the NH Maple Museum and sample maple syrup, pickles and donuts.
