The next meeting of the Manhan Rail Trail Committee will be held Monday, May 22, 2017 at 7:00 PM in the upstairs conference room at the Easthampton Municipal Building, 50 Payson Ave., Easthampton.

Items on the agenda usually includej maintenance issues and ideas for improving and expanding the trail.  All meetings are open to the public and we encourage trail users to stop by and give us some feedback!

Manhan Rail Trail Clean Up: May 6, 2017

Please join us for the annual trail clean up on Saturday, May 6 beginning at about 8:00 AM.  We will need one good sized crew to help spread mulch around the plants near the mural between Payson Avenue and Union Street.

But we also need other areas cleaned as well.  For example, from Coleman Road to South Street, and from Union Street to Ferry Street (especially behind the mills).

Besides picking up trash and spreading mulch, we will be weeding, trimming, sweeping and whatever else needs to be done.

Please bring your own gardening or work gloves, rakes, shovels, clippers, loppers, hand saws, etc.  The city provides trash bags.  Also remember to bring water to drink if you are in a remote area.

It’s a great opportunity to meet some other like-minded folks and help maintain the trail.  Hope to see you there!   Questions?  Call Barb LaBombard: (413) 529-1460.
