Located in the town of Dover, the finished Valley Trail will be a scenic pedestrian and bicycle pathway approximately five miles in length. Located mostly on private lands, the Trail will connect Mount Snow in the north with the West Dover Historic District and village in the south. The proposed trail will provide important transportation benefits for the community, linking the shopping areas and recreational amenities. It will also serve as an important link between several extensive mountain bike trails in Dover and proposed trails in Wilmington, allowing riders to bypass Route 100.
The Valley Trail is designed to benefit both the town's 1500 residents as well as the 600,000 visitors each year who come to Dover to rest, enjoy the rural countryside, and to participate in the area's many amenities and recreational activities.
