The treasure is a deep woodland landscape full of remarkable natural features - the Belknap Range's deepest and wildest valley, called Moulton Valley. It has many very interesting natural features, such as a brook with many small waterfalls and a remarkable flume, a small woodland pond, steep mountain sides (Belknap, Piper, Suncook and Swett Mts) with large rockfalls and mature forests that loggers can't get to on their slopes.The town of Gilford hopes to acquire this land, thru working with the LRCT, which would protect it for future generations. In the past farmers used the north end of the valley to pasture their cattle - they built a wall a few hundred yds below the northern end of the valley and let the steep walls of Piper and Belknap mts serve as the rest of the fencing. A meeting is being held at the Gilford Library this evening at 6:30 to try to gain support for this project.
