Support the New England National Scenic Trail

The New England National Scenic Trail (NET) is a 215-mile hiking trail route that has been in existence for over half a century. The NET runs from Long Island Sound in CT to the MA/NH border, comprised primarily of the Mattabesett, Metacomet, and Monadnock (M-M-M) Trail systems. In Massachusetts, the white-blazed trail follows the historic route of the Metacomet-Monadnock trail. Here are some upcoming opportunities to support this historic trail.
