Railroad St, Methuen

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.

New Year’s Day FIRST WALK on the Methuen Rail Trail

You’re invited. Come one, come all. If you didn’t make it to First Night, you can still start the New Year off on the right foot by joining us for ‘FIRST WALK’ on the ever developing Methuen Rail Trail. You can begin your New Years resolution to take better care of yourself or to get more exercise by meeting us on Sunday, New Years Day at noon behind IHOP at the N.H. end of our Methuen Rail Trail. The sun is supposed to shine, but dress in layers anyway, and if you like, add a hat and mittens. The ground could be muddy so wear appropriate footgear.

Looking forward to seeing you there.
