"transform the trail into a multi-use outdoor recreational facility"

The National Park Service announced it would continue supporting the SNETT trail.
Charles Tracy, director of the Rivers, Trails and Conservation Assistance Program in Massachusetts, will continue helping the Friends of the SNETT plan strategies for developing and improving the 22-mile trail through a consolation grant extended to 2014. 
"We made good progress last year," said Tracy. "The SNETT expanded and strengthened its circle of friends by building partnerships with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), local communities and key organizations. … This year, I look forward to making more friends for the SNETT and realizing on-the-ground trail improvements." 
The Friends have coordinated projects along the trail, from installing signs and gates to grading or widening certain sections. DCR recognized that work late this summer by adding the trail to its online database of state parks and trails.
