The Trails Committee is a subcommittee of the Hanover Conservation Commission.


The Trails Committee of the Hanover Conservation Commission manages trails in Hanover and easements held by Hanover. Trail management may include mapping, monitoring, oversight, routine maintenance, improvement of treadways, construction of new or relocated trails, maintaining contact with landowners, trail planning, and trail advocacy. The Committee cooperates with other trail managers including the Hanover Conservancy, Dartmouth College, White Mountain National Forest, Upper Valley Trails Alliance, Upper Valley Mountain Bike Association, Pine Park Association, and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. In addition, the Trails Committee provides recommendations to the Hanover Conservation Commission for funding and new trail projects.
