Connecting the Wachusett community with trails and greenways

Wachusett Greenways’ mission is connecting the Wachusett-area community with trails and greenways. In 1995, this all-volunteer nonprofit group and our partners began to build and maintain trails. Wachusett Greenways’ key project is the Mass Central Rail Trail (MCRT) in central Massachusetts. Members, volunteers, donors and many partners are central to our work. We have completed 19 miles of the planned 30 miles of the MCRT through the towns of Sterling, West Boylston, Holden, Rutland, Oakham and Barre. The first section of trail opened in 1997.

Wachusett Greenways members, volunteers and donors are working to complete the central 30 miles along with our partners including the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation and other Commonwealth agencies, eight towns, regional foundations and businesses. Other communities are working complete the entire 104 miles of the Mass Central Rail Trail between Northampton and Boston.
