Cemetery Hill Wildlife Management Area
Acquisition History: The Cemetery Hill WMA was donated to New Hampshire Fish and Game by Olive Dobles in 2001.
Description: The Cemetery Hill WMA is entirely wooded and encompasses the top of Cemetery Hill in Sunapee. A hill top stand of oak, pine, and hemlock falls off steeply to the south and southwest; stands of spruce and fir, white pine, birch and maple dominate the north facing slope; and a west facing stand of hemlock grades into a lowland area at the northwest corner of the property. A small portion of a large wetland complex crosses the northwest boundary. A 63 acre deer yard mapped by Fish and Game is almost completely encompassed within the property.
Common Wildlife: Common wildlife includes deer, moose, bear, turkey, and neotropical migrants such as thrushes and tanagers.
Directions: Cemetery Hill WMA can be accessed by heading west on Trow Hill Rd off of Route 11. Then head south on North Road for 0.2 miles to Dobles Road. A parking area has not yet been constructed; please do not block the road, it is a right-of-way for a private residence.
