Special Donation Match for May & June
We need your help to complete the New Boston Rail Trail, five miles along the Piscataquog River from New Boston Village to the Goffstown line. Your individual donations will match a State of NH grant for $102,000 to clear, gravel and finish the last 1.5 miles.
DOUBLE YOUR GIFT BY DONATING NOW!
An anonymous private donor has offered a 1:1 match of up to $15,000 for any contributions in May and June. Thus, a gift of $500 will be doubled to $1,000 toward the State funding requirement. All donations are also tax deductible.
PHASE I - COMPLETED
In 2017, New Boston completed 1.5 miles of uninterrupted, non-motorized, pedestrian recreational trail starting at the Hillsborough County Youth Center and leading to Lang Station on Greg Mill Road, following alongside the Piscataguog River.
PHASE II - UNDERWAY
We need your help to complete the next uninterrupted 1.5 miles of trail that continues from Gregg Mill Road, at Lang Station trailhead, to Parker Road trailhead. This section of trail contains protruding tree roots and trip-laden terrain. 0.25 miles were completed in December 2018.
