Franklin Fives Road Race
The Franklin Fives Road Race supports our efforts to develop the SNETT (Souther New England Trunk Line) in Franklin and Bellingham into a multi-use trail for all to enjoy! We thank you and appreciate your support.
Visit our Franklin Fives Road Race page for more information.
Volunteers are always needed to help support, expand and clean up the trail. There are typically two large clean up efforts (spring and fall) scheduled each year. Please follow us on Facebook for cleanup announcements and more.
Lets Go Explore!
Enjoy a bike ride.
While walking/hiking, be on a lookout for kindness rocks. They can be hiding anywhere along the trail.
Winter brings a special magic to the trail. Enjoy snowshoeing and cross country skiing close to home all winter long.
Nature + Literature = StoryWalk®
The FBRTC (Franklin and Bellingham Rail Trail Committee) hosted several pop-up StoryWalks® . Laminated pages from a story book were posted along a path that lead children and their families further along the trail and into the story. Everyone enjoyed this unique adventure.
Bring your best friend
Leashed dogs are welcome on the trail, but please be sure to clean up after them.
