Amesbury Adopt-a-Trail

The Amesbury Adopt-A-Trail signage makes the trail safer for users and provides funds for trail stewardship.  This trail was the original section of the Coastal Trails Network, and provided inspiration for our neighbor towns of Salisbury, Newburyport and Newbury.

Your contribution shows your support for these critical activities, and for the overall health of our beautiful Riverwalk Trail to all who use it.  Working with the Amesbury Police Department, the markers provide locational signs in case there are accidents along the trail.  The signs also provide a financial and community supporter opportunity.  Funds raised this way allow our loyal contributors to supplement critical trail maintenance items, working with the Town’s Department of Public Works.

Here are the details:

We have installed mileposts every one-tenth of a mile along the 1.2-mile Powow Trail.
An attractive 5″ by 8″ sign on each milepost shows its exact location on the trail. This will allow Amesbury’s public safety personnel to respond promptly to any emergency.
The signs will also display the name and contact information of a trail sponsor, with the option to add the sponsor’s logo as well.  We will feature these logos on the CTC website.
Sponsors will make annual contributions of $250 per sign.
Please send e-mail to if you are interested in becoming a sponsor.
