Welcome to Mead Base Conservation Center
Mead, with its year-round parking, serves as a launch pad for several trailheads including the Wentworth Trail up Mt. Israel, the Bear Camp River Trail, and the hike to Cow Cave and Beede Falls. Many birding, tracking, nature and historic walks begin at Mead. Throughout the summer, trail crews, Audubon interns, and artists make Mead their base. The Base includes several campsites, and groups can rent the main room and kitchen by the day for special gatherings.
Whether you’re looking for a day trip or a camping experience, come visit Mead Base Conservation Center and enjoy the spectacular scenery and the many adventures that abound!
