WHAT WE DO

The Norwottuck Network is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that supports the build-out and operation of the Mass Central Rail Trail (MCRT), the longest rail trail in New England. For local groups and communities, we offer small project grants along the corridor, such as restoration of historic mile-markers and informational kiosks inviting trail users to explore Massachusetts’s a long, storied railroad and industrial past. Additionally, we support small, quick, targeted feasibility studies for future connections along our rail-to-trail linear corridor parks.
