The 1,800 feet of trail has now been improved to meet town specifications and an additional 17 feet of split rail fence have been added by volunteers. Funds from the RTP award, FGRT donations (including those from the Manchester Marathon Association), membership fees and donations from trail users were used to complete this project.

Check out the Trail Information Kiosk that is fully operational at the Mast Road Parking Area. It was constructed by two Girl Scouts, Victoria and Jillian from Goffstown Troop 20841, as their Silver Award Project.
Built to meet the Friends of the Goffstown Rail Trail specifications; the Girl Scouts created a comprehensive business plan that included the funding, purchase of material, construction and final on-site assembly. First, the plan was presented for review and endorsement by the Goffstown Parks and Recreation Commission, after which the donation of the kiosk as an improvement to town property was approved by the Board of Selectman.
