Items on the agenda usually include maintenance issues and ideas for improving and expanding the trail.  All meetings are open to the public and we welcome input from everyone!


Trail Clean Up: May 7,  2016

Calling all volunteers!!  Spring is almost here and it’s time to spruce up the rail trail.

We invite everyone to come out on Saturday, May 7 and help us weed, clean up trash and spread mulch near the mural between Union Street and Payson Ave.  Meet at the mural around 8:15AM and if we get enough volunteers, we should be done by mid to late morning.

Don’t forget to bring work gloves, rakes, shovels, trowels, wheelbarrows and brooms if you have any.

It’s a lot of fun and you get to meet to some great folks.  Hope to see you all there!

Bike Week Breakfast on the Trail: May 14,  2016

We invite all trail users to stop by for breakfast May 14, 2016 between 8:30 and 10:30 as part of the Baystate Bike Week celebration.  The spread will include bagels, fruit and coffee on the Manhan Rail Trail next to Tandem Bagel, 9 Railroad Street, Easthampton (next to the mural).

This annual breakfast is part of a whole week of bike related activities throughout the Pioneer Valley.  We hope to see you there.
