Hopkinton Trail Projects List

Trail construction and maintenance is part of what the Trails Club is all about. Sometimes we do the work, or we may offer advice and guidance to other folks (Scouts, for example) on a project. This is a listing of possible projects. If you would like to take one of them on as a Scout project, corporate service project, community service work, etc., send us an email. We'll work with you on the project details and provide whatever support you need (publicity, town government contacts, volunteers, etc.).

Do you have an idea for a project you don't see on this list? We want to hear about that as well.
