Northampton and New Haven Canal Rail Trail

Organization: City of Northampton, MA

Year: 2010

Amount: 5000

Status: Project complete

Type: Bike path/trail

Address: Northampton, MA

The trail connecting Northampton to Hatfield is an important addition to the growing network serving riders throughout Hampshire County. Our $5,000 investment will fund survey and design work to get the project to the “shovel ready” phase with the goal of leveraging a much larger investment of state and federal dollars for construction. When completed, the project will tie to more than 24 miles of trail and serve some of the largest affordable-housing residential areas in Northampton.
