Current Trail Conditions

December 3, 2018

RTA does not groom or remove snow on the trails in winter, but the trails are open for snowshoeing, skiing or hiking. Be aware that winter storms and the snow, ice and wind they bring increase the chances of blowdowns and large branches on the trail. While we do our best, we can’t always get to these issues as quickly in the winter. We always appreciate updates and reports about trail issues, so if you come across something that needs to be taken care of, please report it here.

Spring is here, and the Cross Rivendell Trail is open for hiking! At this point, most of the mud has dried up, though you may still encounter some blowdowns or debris from the winter. Please let us know if you come across any trail maintenance issues by reporting them here. Throughout the spring and summer, we will be working on a variety of trail maintenance projects. Rivendell Academy students will be putting in a bridge on the section of trail behind the Academy, and third graders will be putting in two new bridges along a section of trail in Vershire. We are also working with the Upper Valley Trails Alliance to repair several sections of trail, and are fortunate to have the High School Trails Corps (which includes Rivendell students) giving some time to our trail this summer. With the exception of the closed and re-routed sections listed below, the trail is open and ready for your feet!

In the winter, RTA does not groom or remove snow on the trails, but the trails are open. Depending on use, the trails may be packed well enough for a hike in boots, but we recommend bringing along snow shoes. You are also welcome to cross-country ski on our trails at your own risk.
