Mink Brook Community Forest

Hanover, New Hampshire is a sought-after place to live and work thanks to a thriving economy and abundant recreational opportunities. To help protect Hanover’s rural character and provide a welcome retreat for local residents and visitors looking to connect with nature, we teamed up with the community to establish the 250-acre Mink Brook Community Forest.

Situated only steps from the Appalachian Trail, this property contains the headwaters of Mink Brook, mature forests, and a scenic hayfield along Greensboro Road. It’s also close to downtown Hanover and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, New Hampshire’s largest employer. This new community forest offers locals and visitors a serene get-away for walking, biking, and cross-country skiing. A special thanks to our partners The Town of Hanover and the Hanover Conservancy who helped make protecting this special place possible.
