The Methuen Rail Trail Alliance

We are a nonprofit all volunteer group, dedicated to maintenance and improvement of the Rail Trail in Methuen. Organized in 2009, the MRTA has worked with the city of Methuen to develop and construct the 2.4 mile trail which connects with the Spicket Greenway in Lawrence and the Bike-Ped Corridor in Salem, NH.

The trail has great recreational, transportational, and economic potential and it is our goal to promote its use and to keep pushing for future development and improvement.
The MRTA volunteers maintain and clean the trail, organize local events, and work to acquire grants and donations to make the trail better and better.
