Norwich Trails

Norwich Trails comprises volunteers who maintain trails in Norwich, VT in support of the Norwich Trails Committee, a subcommittee of the Norwich Conservation Commission.  We work with landowners and cooperating organizations to maintain a network of public trails, spanning Norwich and interconnecting with neighboring communities. We meet concurrently with and report to the Norwich Trails Committee.

Hiking ideas

You can draw hiking ideas from the Discover Norwich Trails of 2020 series, which was a program of discovery hikes to acquaint people with our trails network.

Remembering Liz Russell

On January 31,2021, Norwich Trails lost a dear friend and colleague, Elisabeth (Liz) Russell.

A visionary, and Norwich Trails founding member, Liz was a committed advocate for public access to trails in her community, and to landscape conservation throughout the Upper Valley region.

Thank you, Liz, for your heart and spirit.
