Trail access at DHMC

Fit-Trail™

Note: only stops 1- 9 are available during the construction of the Patient Pavilion.

The outdoor Fit-Trail at DHMC is an approximately one-mile trail that guides you through stretching and warm-up, core exercises, lower and upper body strength, and cool down. Fully illustrated instructions are posted at each of the exercise stations. Whether you choose to walk leisurely along the trail while doing a few stretches or jog the trail and complete the more advanced exercises, the key is to make the Fit-Trail work for you. Keep in mind the trail is not maintained during the winter months.

Visit ManageWell® for more information about the Fit-Trail and earn points each time you use the trail. Pick up a trail map when you are on campus near the Main Rotunda.

Schweitzer Trails

The Albert Schweitzer Woods Trails at DHMC were created in 1999-2000 through an American Schweitzer Fellowship grant. Volunteers from New Hampshire and Vermont helped design and build the trail system.

The trails provide visitors and staff at DHMC access to the natural beauty of New Hampshire’s forests. The power of nature to heal, the inspiration for the trail, is described on the overleaf.

Visit ManageWell® to download the Schweitzer trail map or pick one up at DHMC near the Main Rotunda.
