Registration for the 2020 Hanover Trails Challenge is now open!
We love seeing your pictures from the trail- tag @hanoverconservancy and use #hanovertrailschallenge on Facebook or Instagram to be featured!
Co-sponsored by the Hanover Conservancy and Hanover Parks & Recreation, the Trails Challenge is a do-at-your-own-pace hiking event that runs all summer.
The official end date normally aligns with Fallfest at Storrs Pond, held on the last Friday of September. In 2020, Fallfest may not be held, so stay tuned for directions on turning in your completed booklet!
The Challenge is ideal for families looking for activities throughout summer vacation, and is just as fun for adults or couples who want to explore new areas. Anyone can register– you do not need to be a Hanover resident.
Registration is $6/person or $20/family of 4 or more. $2 from each registration will go towards trail maintenance in Hanover to support these special places.
Hikers register at hanoverrec.com and receive a booklet with maps and directions to 9 local trails. Some trails are within walking distance of downtown Hanover, and several are further out, so you can find new favorite spots in town. 2020 trails were chosen in part for their wide widths- ideal for physical distancing while you hike with a friend!
All maps are produced by Emily Bryant at Stonehouse Mountain Mapping.
