From Greensboro Road turn onto Velvet Rocks Drive. The trailhead and parking is at the end of Velvet Rocks Drive.


The Hanover Conservancy acquired Greensboro Ridge Natural Area in 2008 in partnership with the Town of Hanover and its Trails Committee. The 112-acre property offers a breathtaking landscape as it climbs up the ridge and connects with the Appalachian Trail near Velvet Rocks. Within ten minutes of walking on this trail you will enjoy varied terrain including soft grass paths, wooded trails, and some more challenging footwork as the trail heads over bedrock outcroppings. Proper footwear to prevent slipping is recommended.

Some features of this property that visitors will remember include clearings with various fern species, woodland streams, and notable rock outcroppings, and glacial erratics.

Mountain Biking is allowed on the Silent Brook Portion of the trail only.
