Our Mission

OUR MISSION is to build and maintain multi-use recreation paths within the Mount Washington Valley area that provide residents and visitors alternative community access and opportunities for safe, family-oriented recreation and transportation. 

The mission is an effort to promote health, alternative transport options, and meaningful recreation for parents, children, adults, youth, seniors, and persons of all abilities.

OUR DREAM is to see the Mount Washington Valley Recreation Path incorporated into a continuous 70 mile family-friendly "Linear Parkway" stretching from Portland, Maine through Bartlett, New Hampshire and beyond. This recreation path will be enjoyed by local residents and visitors to our valley. 

This dream is being achieved in small increments. Three segments of this trail system in Maine are already completed thanks to the work done by the Maine Mountain Division Alliance. There are 4 miles in Fryeburg, 6 miles from Windham to Standish and 1 mile in Portland.
