The Velvet Rocks Shelter is located north off the Appalachian Trail 0.8 mile from Rt. 120 in Hanover, NH. This shelter was recently rebuilt by the Dartmouth Outing Club in 2006 replacing the older shelter. The previous shelter was built in 1936 and relocated from the Dartmouth College campus to the existing site. Water is accessed along the shelter loop trail and may be unreliable in the dry months. A privy is located nearby.
