The WVAIA was formed in 1888 by a group of guests at the Elliot's Hotel in Waterville Valley, NH. Its objective was "to encourage all healthful exercise and afford facilities thereto." From the beginning, members assumed care of the hiking trails. Today, the WVAIA continues its historic mission, supporting North America's oldest network of hiking trails, as well as fly-fishing, croquet and social gatherings for outdoor enthusiasts who enjoy all that Waterville Valley, NH, has to offer. Join the WVAIA on National Trails Day to show your support for trails and have some fun, too! The WVAIA will lead additional trail maintenance hikes locally on Saturday, July 3, Saturday, August 7 and Saturday, October 2.
All Trail Days meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Margret & H.A. Rey Center in Waterville Valley’s Town Square. Margret and H.A. Rey, authors of the Curious George children’s book series and former summer residents of Waterville Valley, NH, were artists and adventurers, historians and naturalists, gardeners and stewards. Today their spirit lives on in the Margret and H.A. Rey Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring the Reys’ legacy through art, science, and adventure programs for all ages. For more information please contact the Margret and H.A. Rey Center at www.thereycenter.org or 603-236-3308.
