How to Plan an Event on the Rail-Trail

If you are wanting to schedule an event on the trail, email and BOPARC staff can direct you.    Rental fees at trail-neighboring parks will vary based on location.

We always appreciate a donation to MRTC for use of the rail-trail as we are a small non-profit managing the local rail-trails.
