The next Friends of the Goffstown Rail Trail meeting will be Tuesday January 23rd, 7:00 pm at the Parks & Rec Center on Mast Road (map).
It's that time of year to renew your membership or join the 2017 Friends of the Goffstown Rail Trail. In 2016 funds went to the upgrading of the trail surface at the Manchester / Goffstown line, the improvement of the trail with compact gravel under the power lines near the intersection of Greer Road and Route 114 and much, much more. Please go to our membership page.
December is fundraising month. FGRT has been chosen to participate in the 'Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program' at the Pinardville supermarket. Purchase a reusable canvas bag from December 1st to December 31st and Hannaford will donate $1 to the FGRT.
Thank you for your care and caution during the reshaping and compacting of the trail on the Goffstown Rail Trail near the end of the Piscataquog Trail. The next step will be to add the 'nitpack' gravel to meet the town trail specifications.
A Goffstown Rail Trail video is now available that provides some brief history and trail feature descriptions. Watch it here.
Have you been out on the trail and seen a tree down, trail damage, or some other issue? Submit a Trail Report . We also welcome your photos along the trail, and occasionally post them to this site.
The Goffstown Board of Selectmen have accepted the donation of material and labor from the Friends of Goffstown Rail Trail. Our Volunteer Work Crew has been replacing the soft sand on the trail under the power lines near Route 114 and the intersection of Greer Road. A 4 ft. wide path of hard nitpack gravel has been installed to enable easy passage of bicycles and pedestrians.
The Friends of The Goffstown Rail Trail is an organization of energetic, dedicated citizens volunteering to participate in the promotion, design, development, and maintenance of this resource. Everyone is welcome to contribute to this project.
