The City of Dover and the Dover Community Trail Advisory Committee invite organizations, companies, and general trail lovers to participate in the new Adopt-a-Trail Section program. Volunteer adopters help maintain the beauty and function of the Dover Community Trail by removing litter, trimming overgrowth, and reporting maintenance concerns to the city. Adopters may be individuals, organizations, or civic groups and will be recognized with signage along the trail.

“The Community Trail is a gem in the City of Dover in large part due to the volunteers who assist in cleaning and maintaining the trail throughout the year,” said Assistant City Planner Donna Benton.

The Dover Community Trail is a multi-use trail in Dover. It comprises of two sections: a paved urban section stretching three-quarters of a mile from the Transportation Center to Fisher Street, and a natural section two and a half miles long following the Cochecho River from Beckwith Ballfields to Watson Road. Opening in 2018 are further connections from Fisher Street to the corner of Central Avenue and Rutland Street, and from Fourth Street to the Beckwith Ballfields.
