With Memorial Day coming up, New Hampshire kicks off the summer season. Last summer, many trails were overcrowded as outdoor enthusiasts and newcomers took advantage of the Granite State’s natural resources.

We discuss how we can balance sharing the trails with all those who want to use them, and also promote stewardship of our natural resources.
