Join the Indian Head River Trail Coalition for a walk in Hanover on Saturday May 13 at 9:00 AM as we officially unveil the new Mattakeeset trail and “Chapman’s Landing Overlook”. The completion of the Mattakeeset trail represents the final ‘piece of the puzzle’ in the Indian Head River Trail system, a network of over six miles of interconnected trails along the Indian Head and North Rivers.

We’ll meet in the parking lot on the Hanover side at Luddens Ford Park at 8:45 AM and walk the new Mattakeeset trail which crosses land that is owned by Plymouth County and runs along the north side of the Indian Head River. From there, we’ll then head off around the Chapmans Landing/Iron Mine loop and stop to see the new “Chapman’s Landing Overlook”. ‘This post and beam’ North River viewing platform was constructed by volunteers under the guidance of the Hanover Open Space Committee. The trail projects were sponsored by the town of Hanover Open Space Committee, Plymouth County, and Wildlands Trust. A walk along the new trail to the viewing platform will take place and the new section of trail will be dedicated to the Mattakeeset Tribe by tribal Chief Larry Fischer. The Indian Head River Trail Coalition includes the towns of Hanover, Hanson and Pembroke, Wildlands Trust, Plymouth County and the NSRWA.

Families welcome. No dogs please.

Hike should be completed in under 2 hours and will be approx 2.2 miles in length over relatively flat trails. This area can be muddy so please wear appropriate footwear.

The event is free but you must REGISTER HERE.
