Thorne Pond Conservation Area, New Hampshire – Thorne Pond Conservation Area is a small tract of land located along Route 302 in Bartlett, New Hampshire. The parking lot is directly across from the entrance of Attitash Bear Peak. I know little about this tract of land, but from what I have read online the pond was created to provide water for snow making at Attitash Bear Peak.

Easy access and plenty of parking makes this conservation area a popular spot for walkers and nature lovers. A path travels around the pond and to the Saco River (above), which is located directly behind the pond. On your visit, make a point to walk down to the Saco River and view how Tropical Storm Irene has altered the river channel. It really is impressive.
