50 Year Logo

Celebrating 50 years


50 Year Montage

Our trail systems are being used this year more than ever.  The Natural Resources Trust of Mansfield (NRT) is proud to be the major mover, over the past 50 years, in establishing the many trail systems in Mansfield. A majority of the land, trails, bridges, and boardwalks are there through the efforts of the NRT and its members.

Having access to local trails and open space, and not having to travel, can reduce your chances of exposure to COVID-19, as long as you practice social distancing and wear a mask when near others. 

If you are not aware of all our walking trails, visit this site’s Trails tab.

Please help us continue our efforts for the next half century by joining or donating to the NRT.
