Grants and Other Stuff

We received official notification that FNRT Grafton County will awarded a thirty thousand dollar grant from the NH Tails Bureau in Concord for surfacing a mile section of the trail from Potato Road to the high bridge in Canaan. Also a mile section of the trail will be surfaced at Zackaria Road just East of Grafton.  Brush clearing  of high branches at the sites will begin soon to allow trucks and other machines to access these sites. Hardpak (stone dust and small rocks) will be spread, graded and rolled on the trail.  Construction will occur after July of this year depending on contractor availability.
