A trail work session is planned for Monday May 18th. FGRT has arranged for the town's Park & Rec Department to run the Public Works wood chipper along the entire trail. We need 6 to 8 volunteers willing to work up to 6 hours (or good portions thereof), walking along with the chipper and hauling brush from existing piles to the town employees who will feed it into the machine. Work gloves and hearing protection are highly recommended, as well as water and a towel (expect to sweat). Assemble at the Moose Club Park Road trailhead at 8:30am. Please contact Dave Pierce (660-8239) or Dennis Houle (620-4154) by Sunday evening to let them know you are available to help. For those arriving late, call Dave or Dennis to determine the crew's current location.
The next Friends of the Goffstown Rail Trail will be Tuesday May 26th, 7:00 pm at the Parks & Rec Center on Mast Road (map).
A new Goffstown Rail Trail video is now available that provides some brief history and trail feature descriptions. Watch it here.

It has been a hard winter. 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.
Manchester's trestle over the Piscataquog River has been removed and forms for concrete bridge seats to hold the new bridge are being built on top of the existing stone abutments.
