Q2C: A meeting for NH trail enthusiasts May 2

Quabbin to Cardigan mapAttention, New Hampshire trail enthusiasts.

The Southwest Regional Planning Commission and Monadnock Conservancy will be hosting the last of three meetings of organizations and citizens interested in a possible long-distance hiking “Quabbin-to-Cardigan” trail in western New Hampshire —  from the Massachusetts/New Hampshire border to Mt. Cardigan and beyond to the White Mountains.

When: Wednesday, May 2, 2012, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m

Where: Community Room at Antioch New England, 40 Avon Street, Keene, N.H.

The meeting is a key part of a trail study being managed by the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and the Appalachian Mountain Club, with help from the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails & Conservation Assistance program.

“The goal of the study is to take a first look at the feasibility of and local interest in a long-distance trail in the region. The study is NOT for creating any new federal or state designation of trails in the area,” according to the release.

At the meeting, people will be able to:

  • view maps of the area
  • speak with others in southwest N.H. about potential trail routes and connections, and
  • get answers to any questions about the trail study.

The information provided at the three meetings will help decide the next steps in the trail study.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

RSVP by contacting Lelia Mellan at NPS, Lelia_Mellen@nps.gov or 802-457-3368 x14, or Mike Gilldesgame, mgildesgame@outdoors.org, by Friday, April 27.
