The Mahoosuc Way

The Mahoosuc area’s mountains, rivers, lakes, and forests provide amazing recreational opportunities for visitors and local residents.
Our working forests are also an important source of income for private landowners and raw materials to support local wood product manufacturing businesses. Over generations we learned to depend on each other and work together for our shared benefit. Tending our working landscape and respecting each other is at the core of how we do things here – it’s The Mahoosuc Way.
