Description

The Mascoma River Greenway (MRG) is envisioned as a 4-mile bicycle and pedestrian non-motorized, separated pathway connecting Lebanon with West Lebanon. 

The first mile of the MRG, which officially opened January 31st, 2010, extends the Northern Rail Trail from downtown Lebanon at High Street, westbound to the Slayton Hill Road/Mascoma Street rail bridge.

The alignment and land access negotiations for the remaining 3.5 mile section of proposed trail continues with high hopes of reaching a proposed riverside park at the former Westboro Rail Yard in West Lebanon in coming years.

Other Information

The Mascoma River Greenway Coalition envisions a riverfront pathway that:

  • Provides a connection to a regional, human-powered transportation network
  • Encourages Lebanon citizens to engage in active lifestyles
  • Contributes to the local and regional economy
  • Serves as a catalyst for future pathway development
  • Includes art on the trail
  • Is part of a system of connected multi-use trails and public access that will provide a combination of in-town and natural area experiences within Lebanon and the Upper Valley region
