The windstorm of Oct. 29-30 visited our trails and it will take time to clear all the paths. Our volunteers made much progress at Balch Hill on 10/31 and at Lower Slade Brook on 11/4. Please get in touch to report other obstructions. New volunteers always welcome!
Now that a beautiful (but fleeting) summer is upon us, it’s time to head out on the trail. Check our Hikes of the Month for detailed routes and the stories behind them. There’s still time to sign up for the Fourth Annual Hanover Trails Challenge!
On July 1, Mother Nature reminded us who’s in charge. Most of our trails are in good condition except for a few spots at the Mink Brook Nature Preserve – two blow-downs on the Trout Brook Trail and a small missing bridge on the Sachem Connector Trail. At Slade Brook, trails are clear and the flood actually improved the lower falls by scouring the ledge. Reports are not yet in for the Mayor-Niles Forest or Tunis Brook Mill Lot. If you’d like to help with trail restoration, please get in touch.
Conditions were too wet (and cold and downright nasty) for Part II of our Wolfeboro Road pilgrimage back in May. We’ve set a new date: Saturday, July 15, rain date Sunday 7/16, 10-3pm. DETAILS
Come along on a family-friendly hike to this beautiful property, whose permanent protection will be voted on at the Hanover Town Meeting on May 9th.
Our Saturday birding trips continue on the 29th at 7 a.m. at the Mink Brook Nature Preserve.
