 Finding nature preserves and trails in NH
Hi folks,

Just coming by to introduce you to http://www.50MilesFromHome.org - a website dedicated to helping people find nature preserves and other green spaces in New Hampshire. It's a new project that came about by my frustration with finding nature trails to explore without burning a tank of gas or visiting the same old places. I'm attempting to aggregate info sources from different land steward orgs and to help people find them by region, town and even by natural feature. It's just begun and I hope you find it valuable. If you have anything positive or constructive to contribute, I'm all ears.

Cheers and happy trails,

Kris

I don't have much time to look now, but I took a quick look and this seems like a great resource. I already found a conservation map for my town (Newmarket) that I hadn't seen before. Thanks for posting!

Pretty helpful. Looks like a more organized version of my computer favorites! I love these little local places, especially when time is short or with the kids. There's also the NH Trails Project thread in this forum. Might find a few to add to your site there.

Being nitpicky, in the regions section, Im not sure many people will say "i want to hike in chandlers purchase". I don't think most people know what peaks are in chandlers purchase. Are you catering to the hiker who isn't hardcore like some people are or are you looking at a bit of both?

 Re: Finding nature preserves and trails in NH
I'm trying to help people in NH find nature preserves and trails in their areas - not necessarily hard core hikers. So Chandler's Purchase, yeah, that's going to be a bit of a stretch, but if I left it out someone would let me know.

Insofar as hard core hikers go, you might have a point with listing the peaks in the far-flung areas. I'll keep it in mind, although I think those folks already know what's where, or am I making an assumption?
