Deerfield/Mt. Pawtuckaway Reservation
Deerfield, NH
Late 1930's-Early 1940's

According to several guidebooks, a rope tow served an open slope in the Mt. Pawtuckaway reservation in the late 1930's and early 1940's. It was 375' long, certainly a short tow, and was probably used more for practice than use as an all day area. The exact location is a bit nebulous. The guidebooks list it as being located on Route 109, south of Deerfield center. However, these list several trails in the Reservation. Some had drops of 400-500', with steep narrow pitches and curves. These trails were all over the Reservation; on South Mountain, North Mountain, from the lookout tower, etc. There was even a slalom course set up on South Mountain. The tow could have been anywhere in the Reservation.

Thanks to Peter Sawyer for helping point out this one.
