" "

Hanover Township Recreation and Wegmans invite you to join the Healthy in Hanover “Hit the Trail” Program! Discover the diverse and beautiful parks and trails throughout Cedar Knolls and Whippany as you get fit, stay healthy, and have fun!

Here is how the program works:

  • Begin your wellness journey by picking up your Hit the Trail passport at The Hanover Township Recreation Department which is located in the Hanover Township Community Center or at the Hanover Wegmans Customer Service Desk.
  • Take your passport and hit one of the 10 featured trails in the passport.
  • There is a trail marker located on each trail. Rub the insignia on top of the marker in the passport to record your visit.
  • Drop off your completed passports at the Hanover Township Recreation Department located within the Hanover Township Community Center at 15 North Jefferson Road in Whippany.
  • Passports with 7 (seven) completed walks as indicated by the rubs will receive a water bottle.
  • Passports with 10 (ten) completed walks as indicated by the rubs will receive a Wegmans reusable plastic shopping bag.
  • Passports with 10 (ten) completed walks as seen by the rubs will also be entered into a drawing to receive a $250.00 Wegmans gift card. One gift card will be awarded.
  • The winner will be announced at Hanover Township Day on Saturday, September 18, 2021.
  • The program begins on Monday, February 1, 2021. All passports to be considered eligible for the grand prize drawing must be completed and turned into the Hanover Township Recreation Department by Friday, September 3, 2021, at noon.

If you are walking the trail and you see something in need of repair, please contact the Hanover Township Department of Public Works at 973-428-2495 or Hanover Township Recreation at 973-428-2463 to report the problem.
