The Second College Grant is a 27,000 acre forest land reserve owned by Dartmouth College in the northern tip of New Hampshire. The land was granted to the college by the state legislature in 1807 to help fund the education of New Hampshire residents, mostly from the sale of timber. The Grant boasts significant populations of native wildlife, and the most extensive wild (unstocked) native brook trout fishing in New Hampshire. It's where the Boys, their paths, and the rivers they love to fish converge. It's the home of The Confluence.
