Hanover Trails Challenge

2018 registration has closed…thanks to everyone for another great year!

FallFest 2015

Co-sponsored by the Hanover Conservancy and Hanover Parks & Rec, the Challenge is a do-at-your-own-pace event that runs all summer. The official end date always aligns with Fallfest at Storrs Pond, held on the last Friday of September.

Turn in your completed booklet at the Conservancy table to win raffle prizes from local business sponsors listed below!

We love seeing your pictures from the trail- tag @hanoverconservancy and use #hanovertrailschallenge to be featured on our site!








Hikers register at hanoverrec.com and receive a booklet with maps and directions to 6-8 easy, local trails. Some trails are within walking distance of downtown Hanover, and several are further out, so you can find your new favorite spots in town!

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.


Tshirts at HAFM - Copy

Registration is $5/person and includes your booklet and a fun t-shirt designed by local graphic designer jason mark beaton.  Each year has a different theme encouraging you to “Get Outdoors and Explore!”
