The Piscataquog Trail is a 10 ft wide, paved recreational trail in the West Side of Manchester. The trail is highly utilized by cyclists and pedestrians and allows residents from the West Side of Manchester to the amenities of downtown. In addition to the recreational value of the trail itself, the trail also links residents to other recreational amenities, such as the West Side Ice Arena, football, soccer, and softball fields.
The fourth and final phase of developing the Piscataquog Trail is underway! Through a NHDOT administered FHWA Transportation Enhancement grant, and a generous local match raised by the trial and advocacy group, Manchester Moves, getting form Manchester to Goffstown safely by walking or cycling is just one bridge and 1500 feet of trail away! Construction of the final phase began in May, 2015 and is scheduled for completion in October 2015.
Design plans for the fourth and final stage of the Piscataquog River Trail Bridge.
