Description

Starks Knob Scientific Reservation is a basaltic pillow lava formation which formed about 450 million years ago in relatively shallow sea water, it was here that NH General John Stark cut off British General John Burgoyne's army from northward retreat during the Saratoga Campaign of the American Revolution, hence its name. Its east face was mostly removed as road fill in the years prior to 1916 with its preservation now incorporated into the master plan of Hudson Crossing Park.
