Our trails accommodate a variety of users:
- Appalachian Trail and its corridor (foot traffic only)
- Hiking trails
- Mountain bike routes
- Class 4 roads (open to all users)
- Winter: Trails are used extensively. Bring snowshoes or traction gear (e.g. microspikes), depending on how deep the fresh snow is. Some trails are suited for back-country skiing. Bring layers for warmth and protection against precipitation. Park out of the traveled lane and be aware of snow plow turn-around points.
- Spring: Trails may be closed owing to mud. Otherwise, avoid walking around mud on flats; it widens the trail. Step on rocks and roots, where possible to avoid further erosion.
- Summer: Trails should be distinct during this time of high use. Time to explore new trails!
- Fall: Trails become indistinct from falling leaves. Wear bright clothing during deer hunting season.
- Anytime: If you see a problem with a poorly drained trail, bees’ nest, or fallen tree, please report it to email@example.com.
Guidelines for trail use include:
Some suggested loop and out-and-back hikes are tabulated at Norwich Hikes.
