Now and then, the Hanover Conservation Council has asked me to prepare
an "introduction to orienteering" session, using the new Storrs Pond O-map.
Here are the materials I used for the last one, in November 2004.
We've long since taken the control flags down, but the locations may still be
marked with a short piece of blue surveyor's tape, if you're lucky.
Note that control #42 can be a bit tricky---use caution!
Over the years, Dartmouth has made orienteering maps of a few
regions in the area.
Brian Kunz of the Office of Outdoor Programs kindly lent me a
stack of floppies, and I'm gradually working on extracting
workable data from them. Below is what I have so far.
I've worked a bit with a paper copy of a 1:10000 version of this map.
Be warned: since the map was made, the've built a few more ski trails
throughout (see link below),
and done a bit of logging on the eastern end.
The whole giant map, as encapsulated postscript files,
backwards, in single colors:
The western half, printable on 8.5 x 11 paper,

The eastern half, printable on 8.5 x 11 paper,

has been working with re-surveying Hanover-area trails.
is the latest official data.
Historic USGS Maps
UNH has old USGS maps online, if you're interested in the way things
used to be.

is the Silver Fox Ski Touring Center's map of the Oak Hill/Storrs Pond
You may also find some elevation profiles
The Vermont Mountain Biking Association
has compiled an amazing free map of the trails and old roads in
the Vermont side of the Upper Valley region.

I find that the regional loop
at Intellicast is a good way to time my bike rides so I don't get caught in a storm.
