TOWN OF ALBANY CONSERVATION COMMISSION ALBANY, NH 03818 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NEW HAMPSHIRE MAGAZINE NAMES LOCAL TOWN FOREST TRAIL “BEST OF NH 2014” ALBANY, NH – 5/25/14 – The Albany Town Forest Trail network has been selected by the editors of New Hampshire Magazine as “Best of NH 2014” for the “Multi-Use Trail” category. The trail network is located off of the Kancamagus Highway just west of the junction of Routes 16 and 112. The trail network covers part of the 300 acre Albany Town Forest and provides both open space recreation and natural resources for the townspeople, area residents, and visitors. Since it’s acquisition in 2012, trail work has been underway by volunteers to improve and create a 4 mile trail network that runs from the western edge of the property along the Swift River, to the B&M railroad trestle behind Kennett Middle school with almost 2 miles of frontage on the Swift River. All the trails are on mostly level terrain and are being used by a wide variety of users including walkers, runners, mountain bikers, snowshoers, and cross country skiers. The hiking trails are blazed in blue paint and trail signs are posted at trail intersections. In addition, information kiosks have been erected at two locations and are posted with trail maps and information. Initial work has created a rough parking lot to be finished later this summer, in the middle of the property about ¾ of a mile west of Rt. 16 on the Kancamagus Highway. A second parking area will be constructed on the far western end of the property at a later date. Additional volunteer support has been provided by the local chapter of New England Mountain Bike Association and the US Forest Service’s Saco District staff. New Hampshire Magazine is the state’s premier lifestyle magazine. It is published by McLean Communications, a media company based in Manchester NH. Its other publications include NH Business Review, New Hampshire Home, Parenting NH and Bride. McLean is a wholly owned subsidiary of Yankee Publishing, Inc., publishers of Yankee Magazine and The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
