Blackwater Awarded $18,000 Grant

Date Posted: 10/7/2013

Last winter Blackwater applied for and received a competitive grant offered though the NH Recreational Trails Program.

We were thrilled to learn that we will be awarded $14,000 (on the condition that we raise an additional $4000 match). With your help, we will purchase 3 pieces of grooming equipment: a utility snowmobile, a roller, and a groomer/track setter.


With this added equipment, we will be able to maintain trails at both Gould Hill and the Hopkinton Fairgrounds. The resumption of grooming at the Fairgrounds is welcome news to all as it provides greater flexibility in regards to terrain and the management of snow conditions.
