A partial list of local groups with a particular interest in the Rail Trail:  CLSRT is working to further the trail in all communities.  Several communities have local efforts also working on the trail.

In Concord portions of the trail are on land managed by the Concord Conservation Commission.  See maps 1 and 3 on the Concord Trail System Guidebook and Maps for descriptions of trails along the old Concord to Claremont Railroad line.  Enthusiasts may want to look more closely at land and easements owned by the City of Concord through their online GIS viewer.

In Hopkinton a portions of the trail are on the Stevens Rail Trail, the Rollins Property, and Mast Yard State Forest.  All are managed by a joint project of the Hopkinton Conservation Commission and the Hopkinton Open Space Committee.

In Warner the Concord-Lake Sunapee Rail Trail works closely with the Warner Conservation Commission as much of the trail is close to the Warner River.  Warner Parks & Recreation has also provided significant help with trail construction and maintenance.

In Bradford the Rural Heritage Connection of Bradford is working with the Lake Sunapee Snowmobile Club to make extensions to the Tilly Wheeler Trail.
