Norwich Trails is an all-volunteer subcommittee of the Norwich Conservation Commission. While our formal name is Norwich Trails Committee, on this web site we just use Norwich Trails to convey our focus is on the trails, consistent with our civic responsibilities.
We maintain trails for public use, throughout the town of Norwich, VT. Where called for, we sometimes get involved in creating a new trail, typically working with landowners eager to integrate an existing pathway into the managed trail network.
We are thankful for cooperation of participating Norwich landowners, town officials and staff, the entire community – and also from partner organizations ncluding the Upper Valley Trails Alliance, Upper Valley Land Trust, Appalachian Trail Conservancy and Green Mountain Club.
We meet monthly to identify maintenance needs, plan trail work activities and strategize about trail projects. We conduct well-attended regular work sessions to remove windfalls, clean out water bars, clear brush and other debris, rebuild bridges and other structures.
