History of the Alliance
Founded in 1999 as a priority arising from a multi-community needs assessment, the Upper Valley Trails Alliance was formed to respond to the need for trails as pathways to improve health and communities. Ever since, UVTA has been actively working to support and advocate for trails in the Upper Valley. We strive to leverage our alliance and community partnerships to connect people to the myriad benefits of trails and outdoor recreation. Our goals include ensuring equitable access, promoting physical and mental health, encouraging conservation and sustainability, and promoting outdoor recreation to foster sustainable economic development. Over time, our community and trails-related advocacy has led us to develop many programs, projects and events.
