Notice of Trail Closures

Over the last couple of years several single track mountain bike trails have been constructed on the Hayes Farm Conservation
Easement.  The Farm is private property with a limited right for public access.  The rogue trails were built without the
permission of the landowner.  The Madbury Conservation Commission joins with the landowner in moving to close these trails.
The building of trails without landowner permission is highly disrespectful of the generous access afforded by the easement,
and jeopardizes future conservation efforts.
The trails to be closed are located between the long existing trails that parallel the Bellamy River. As of November 27, 2016
we have posted signs on the trails to better mark the closed trails.  All other trails illustrated on the trail map remain open for
everyone’s enjoyment. 
We would appreciate the community's cooperation in this effort.

Clicking on the map fragment, immediately below, downloads a pdf of the closed trails.
