Monadnock Trails Week
Monadnock Trails Week is an annual collaboration between the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and NH State Parks. We aim to protect, improve, and promote the trails of the Monadnock Region. Monadnock Trails Week began in 2006.
Welcome to the 17th annual Monadnock Trails Week!
On July 13th through 17th you have the opportunity to give back to one of New Hampshire’s most beloved landscapes and share in camaraderie and community through stewardship. Volunteers be able to work on a variety of trail maintenance projects on Monadnock and Gap Mountains, led by experienced and professional trail workers. Whether it is your first- or fiftieth time doing trail work, it’s a great opportunity to learn new skills, have fun, and do good work. Projects will range from basic maintenance to building trail structures from rock or wood. We will once again be hosting affinity crews for women (and female identifying folks), LGBTQIA+, and BIOPOC individuals to help foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for people to get involved with trail work.
We are excited for a fun week in the woods, and hope to see you there! See you in 2023!
If you would like to put together a group and have a project of your own for next year, reach out to Laurel Swope-Brush. In past years, we've worked with Keene High School Honor Society, the Cardigan Highlanders Trail Crew, and other business/employee groups. We'd love to work with you next year!
Thank you for supporting the 16th Annual Monadnock Trails Week!
