  • Methuen Rail Trail Earth Day Cleanup
    On Saturday, April 22, the Methuen Rail Trail will be celebrating Earth Day with a cleanup of the Rail Trail in Methuen.  This trail navigates from behind the Central fire station all the way to the Salem, NH boarder.  It includes side trails along the Spicket River greenway, and offers people in the city a place to enjoy recreation and physical fitness.
