Trail Map of Hanover
Foot travel only - Most trails are closed to motorized vehicles and bicycles.
Exceptions are noted below


Private land - Many of the trails and protected green areas are open to the public by the generosity of owners. Please use the trails in a manner worthy of their trust. Remember, too, that NH law absolves such owners from liability for mishaps.

Class VI roads - are historic public roads that are no longer maintained for traffic. Many are good for hiking and skiing. Vehicular use is generally allowed, but may be infeasible. Please don't ride or drive on these roads in muddy conditions. It ruins the roadbed for everyone.

Bicycles - are allowed on trails #13A, #31, #33, #36, #37, #71A and Class VI roads.

Snowmobiles - are allowed on trail #37 and Class VI roads.

Accessibility - In dry weather sections of some trails may be usable by wheelchairs, strollers and the like, though the trailbeds are not up to ADA standards. Likely sections are #1 from the east, #2 from the west and #31.

Winter hiking - Please keep one ski track clear where possible.  Though it's easier to walk in ski tracks, it makes potholes that can catch skis.

Enjoy the trails - Please carry out all that you carry in, stick to the trails, and respect private property.
