Hanover Trails are maintained and monitored by the Hanover Open Space Committee. The committee was chartered to ensure that the town's rural character is maintained and enhanced both through protection of existing resources and acquisition of new properties.
The Hanover Open Space Committee (OSC) is responsible for planning and facilitating the improvement of open space, enhancing access to open space, and raising awareness of land use issues. The OSC has built trails, bridges and boardwalks, using volunteer labor and grants, that have given Hanover residents greater access to the great outdoors.
The OSC is also interested in protecting land that is environmentally sensitive, could be used for passive recreation, or is important for conserving the look and feel of the town. The OSC goal is to retain the natural beauty and heritage of the town we live in, and love.
