Trails Committee

Congratulations to the many volunteers who worked on the Aberjona River Bridge in September and October.  It's done and it looks great!  No further work days are scheduled at this time, but watch this space for possible November work dates.  Trail work will begin in the spring on the trail near the Hunt Street trailhead. 

Trail materials are funded by a grant from the MA Recreational Trails Program (RTP).  The RTP is a federal assistance program of the US Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration, administered by the State.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the Reading Trail Committee is to plan, develop, and maintain present and future trails in the Town of Reading. The goal is for the Town to create and maintain a connected, well coordinated system of trails to serve the residents of the community. The Committee works closely with the Conservation Commission and the Town Forest Committee on permitting and coordinating projects. The Committee also works with the Reading Open Land Trust (ROLT) on connecting town-owned land with ROLT properties and with Walkable Reading to encourage walking.
Trail Maintenance and Suggestions:
Trail users are encouraged to report trail maintenance issues or suggestions to the Trails Committee Email or on the Committee's Facebook Page. Individuals or groups interested in maintaining a specific trail are encouraged to check out the Committee's Adopt-A-Trail Program.
