Winnipisaukee River Trail Association Mission Statement

The Winnipesaukee River Trail Association is a unique coalition of volunteers representing local business, environmental and health care organizations whose goal is to develop and maintain a multi-use trail along the Winnipesaukee River.
By preserving and increasing access with a positive physical health approach to the Winnipesaukee River and its natural surroundings, the trail will: bring together the communities of Franklin, Tilton and Northfield, connect with regional trail systems, and offer increased access to many scenic, recreational and historical sites in the area.
