About the Friends of the
Merrimack River Greenway Trail

The Friends of the Merrimack River Greenway Trail is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization.  It was founded in November 2011 to spearhead an effort to create a paved multi-use trail in Concord, New Hampshire.  To date, we have raised $600,000 in donations from over 430 individuals, companies and foundations and we have collaborated with the City of Concord in raising another $1,375,000 in grants.


In the summer of 2020, the City constructed the first phase of the trail...a 12-foot wide, 0.3-mile long segment in Terrill Park.

Efforts are currently underway to raise $250,000 for construction of the next phase of the MRGT, a 1.79-mile long rail trail in Penacook.
