Protected! Nulhegan River Wetland

This time last week we finalized the purchase of 13 acres along the Nulhegan River, a place we call Nulhegan Pond Access. Just off Highway 105 in Brighton, the site includes a small parking area and a few steps down to the river, giving paddlers’ easy access to the waterway. Boaters can paddle north through these 13-acres of vibrant wetlands, exploring multiple channels and backwaters en route to Nulhegan Pond, a wide spot along the Nulhegan River.

The area provides high quality habitat to herons, otters, beavers, and migratory songbirds.

If you’re in the area, consider a stay at Nulhegan Hut. Just a few miles up the road in Bloomfield, our 4-season off-the-grid hut gives adventurers a cozy place to stay year-round.
