Description

Stonehouse is arguably the most impressive of the little cliffs in southeastern NH. Situated on the shore of a beautiful clear pond, it is remarkable for this part of the state. There are a good range of routes from 5.5 - 5.13d including 15 bolted routes. The cliff is composed of pegmatitic granite and is about 100' at its tallest. It generally faces east and northeast making it a good afternoon destination in hot weather. There's also a great swimming hole along the access trail.

ATTENTION: The cliff and the surrounding 241 acres was purchased in 2010 by the Trust for Public Land, Strafford Rivers Conservancy, New Hampshire Fish and Game, the Town of Barrington and other partners. The conservation of this land is the result of years of hard work. After decades of access issues this has been a gift to all who value this natural resource. Remember, this could just as easily have been a housing development. Please treat the area with respect and do your part to keep it clean. Pack out all of your trash. Better yet, make the extra effort and pack out what others have left behind. Answer nature's call far from the shores of the pond and trails and bury any human waste.

Getting There

The cliff is located in Barrington NH.. There is a 10 minute approach hike along the eastern shore of the pond. If you're going east on 202, there's a sign for the pond about 1 1/2 miles east of Northwood, or about .2 miles east of a pub called Tough Tymes. Parking is limited. Google Maps Stonehouse Pond will get you there.
