The Charlestown Conservation Commission (CCC) maintains six (6) trails, listed below.

- The Great Meadows Trail
- The Nature Trail
- The Reservoir Lot Trails
- The Connecticut River State Forest Trail
- The Hubbard Hill State Forest Trail

Working with the Upper Valley Trails Alliance, the CCC has added these trails to an online database of trails throughout NH & VT. To see detailed information on Charlestown's trails (as well as other towns) follow the link below. Once you click on the link, it will bring you to the Upper Valley Trails Alliance's homepage. From there, click the link on the left that says "Trailfinder" and you will be directed to the Trailfinder website. It lists the names of trails as well as GPS information, pictures, descriptions, lengths, difficulty and driving directions to each trail. You may also leave comments on each trail, as well as contact the trail’s manager to report any problems (downed trees, etc.).

The Conservation Commission meets every 3rd Monday
of every month at 7:00 PM in the Community Room.
