Great day on the trail yesterday…. perfect weather, great mood, lots of fun and goodies… A. Pinto, Anna Pinto, Bob Joubert all participated in the entire run - but it looks like Harry and Danny Banks were the big winners.

The Methuen Rail Trail Alliance is sponsoring a day of free, family fun along the Methuen Rail Trail!
8:30 – Start the day with a no frills, 2.5-mile race along the trail that will take runners through the bird sanctuary and up to the New Hampshire border.
If you prefer a more leisurely pace, enjoy a self-guided walk and scavenger hunt along this beautiful trail.
Special Instructions: The race will begin at 8:30am at the historic train depot on Railroad St. From the depot, runners will go through the bird sanctuary and up to the New Hampshire border, at which point they will turn around to return the depot. Water will be provided to runners at the finish.
Self-guided walks and a scavenger hunt on the trail from 10am – 2pm.
Tour information will be provided and volunteers will be available to answer questions about the trail. Scavenger hunt prizes will be given out between 10am-12pm.
Thanks to Ross Parker we have a new used mower. We have accepted a lot of used push mowers in the past, this is our first working ride on. Jim Christie has been our iron man walking up and down the shoulders of the trail. Now he will get to ride. Thanks Ross!….many many thanks to Jim.
The MSPCA’s Walk for Animals was a great success for the Methuen Rail Trail. This was the 1st year they have held it at the Nevins Farm allowing folks to walk their pooches on the Methuen Rail Trail, first as a parade, and then more loosely spaced out normal walking pace. Everyone had a good time and the Rail Trail Volunteers had a lot of visitors at the information table asking for more information and getting handsfulls of trail maps. We look forward to 2014!
Join us for our 5th annual Walk for Animals! With contests & prizes, food & music, kids’ activities, canine demonstrations and other animal antics, there is something for everyone at the Walk! This year there are more animals than ever before who need our help, and we’re not going to let them down.

You never know who you will meet out on the Methuen Rail Trail. State Representative Diana Dizoglio was taking a tour of the rail trail, and got to meet some of the trail regulars including this little fella named Ruckus, we are not sure whether to chalk him up as a dog or a pony!
