For Trails Day this year, the Hanover Conservation Commission Trails Committee and the Hanover Conservation Council joined together to cut a new trail section in Mink Brook. This trail connects the trail head at the gate at Brook Road to the town trails closer to the Connecticut River. With the new connecting link, it will be possible to walk along Mink Brook, without going on Brook Road.
Eleven volunteers helped work on the new trail, which took about 2 hours to clear. One of the interesting challenges were the numerous hanging vines, some of which were strong enough to swing on. There was also a lot of underlying brush that had to be dragged out.
We hope that the new trail proves popular and useful.
