Trail Mapping Assistance Available for Rockingham and Strafford County Towns

Published: May 3, 2017

Does your town need help mapping trails? Do you want to make it easier for people to find trails in your community? Curious about how to better connect trails with your downtown? We can help! UNH Cooperative Extension is sponsoring a student intern this summer (June-August 2017) to help communities in Rockingham and Strafford Counties map their trails and post trails on  If your trails are already mapped, we can still help you explore the economic potential of your trails and help get them posted online.

The NH Trail Finder Project makes it easy for people to find trails in their communities to increase access to nature, improve health, enhance social connections and positively influence local economies. Trail Finder maps trails across New Hampshire and Vermont on one easy-to-use website. We are currently working to expand to include more town-owned trails in Rockingham and Strafford Counties.

How do you get assistance from our intern? Simply fill out the simple form below by May 26, 2017. Selected communities will be notified by June 2, 2017.

Please contact Emma Tutein at if you have any questions.
