Special Thanks

  The Hazen's Notch Association is very grateful to all of our cooperating landowners whose generosity allows over 40 miles of trails to remain open to the public on 2,500 acres of private land.  Thank you !

Group Visits

  Please note that while the HNA Trails are open to the public at no charge in the summer, a fee is charged for groups. This includes school, home school, church or other community groups. This includes both non-profit and for-profit groups and whether your visit is self-directed or facilitated by HNA staff.

  There are many costs associated with the management of trails that are open to the public. Group use fees and membership contributions help the HNA office to meet these expenses. Please contact the HNA office to arrange your group visit.   Thank you.
