Rollins State Park is a state park in Warner, New Hampshire. It is located at the southern base of Mount Kearsarge, at the entrance to an auto road that ascends to within 0.5 miles (0.8 km) of the summit. Picnic facilities are available, and hiking trails leave from the high point of the auto road to the summit.

Winslow State Park is located at the northern base of the mountain.

The park is named for Frank W. Rollins, who served as governor of New Hampshire from 1899 to 1901.

The Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway is a 75-mile (121 km) loop hiking trail that links four New Hampshire state parks: Mount Sunapee, Winslow, Wadleigh and Rollins.[2] The trail also links three New Hampshire state forests: Gile, Kearsarge and Shadow Hill, as well as one state wildlife management area: Bog Mountain.
