Grand Opening of the Jaquith Rail Trail
Sunday, May 6, 2018,
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
Over the last few years, the Harris Center has been working with the Harrisville Trails Committee to open sections of the old Manchester & Keene Railroad line to non-motorized recreation. Most recently, we’ve focused on a 1.5-mile segment that runs from Jaquith Road in Harrisville to Jaquith Road in Hancock – including a challenging 50-foot gap that has now been spanned by a repurposed historic steel truss bridge. Join Jeremy Wilson and guests for a ribbon cutting to officially open this newly completed trail. Refreshments will be served.
The ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m. at the new bridge, approx. 0.6 mile from the trailhead on Jaquith Road in Harrisville and 0.8 mile from the trailhead on Jaquith Road in Hancock. Because parking is limited at the Harrisville trailhead, please consider meeting at the Harris Center at 12:30 p.m. to carpool or parking at the trailhead on Jaquith Road in Hancock and walking the 0.8 mile to the bridge. (See map.)
