Delaware and Hudson Rail-Trail

Poultney to Castleton

September, 2020 by gjzambetti

Wonderful trail. Nine miles of crushed stone and hard pack dirt from southern end to Castleton University parking lot. I would not use a thin tire road bike. Beware: the southern end is a dead end 2 miles from Poultney and does not have a parking lot as indicated on the trail map. You must park in Poultney in a well marked lot off of Bentley Ave.

Cheshire Rail Trail (Cheshire Branch Rail Trail)

great ride

September, 2020 by casschoen

We started in Walpole at Blackjack Crossing. First few miles were tough! But the remaining 12 miles into Keene were great. Some great views and remnants of the railroad. Some beautiful cuts in the stone. Highly recommend!

Cheshire Rail Trail (Cheshire Branch Rail Trail)

Great Ride

September, 2020 by bkersula

I rode the northern section today. Actually started near the Walpole bridge and rode some other snowmobile trails and some side roads to the junction with the rail trail, then on to Keene. Saw no one until I reached the dump. Trail was a lot of fun, but in much better shape south of the dump then to the north. Very slow grade, north of the dump it was great in places and pretty bumpy in others. I rode a basic mountain bike and had no trouble. Heard there was a bad section somewhere but never encountered anything that was really unrideable except one bad embankment. Trail was also easier to follow and more obvious the further south you went, multiple snowmobile crossings further north. This was the first time I tried this sort of thing and I had a very good time. I enjoyed the terrain and seeing where the remnants of the old line.

Northern Rail Trail

Boscawen to Highland Lake

September, 2020 by aldcon_tl

Parked at lot at ballfield at end of Depot Street in Boscawen. Go to very end of Depot Street and lot is on the right. Took trail for about 16 miles to town beach at Highland Lake on Channel Road. Slightly uphill all the way. Very few soft spots. In general all trail all packed gravel. Public beach also at Webster Lake ( about 13 miles from Depot St.).

The trail only exists for snow mobiles.

Hillsborough Recreational Rail Trail

Looking for a bike trail? Look elsewhere.

August, 2020 by shakman9999

This is an ATV trail. Plain and simple. Loose surface, LOTS of ATV traffic, and even the occasional donkey. Yes, donkey....kinda cool actually!

If you have a hardtail or full suspension bike with proper aggressive tires, you're probably ok. If you're riding a hybrid...not so much. I think you'll be disappointed.

Cheshire Rail Trail (Cheshire Branch Rail Trail)

Westmoreland to Keene

August, 2020 by aldcon_tl

Started at Depot Rd. in Westmoreland . Trail in fair condition. Some soft spots, some puddles and sticks but averaged 8 mph. For mile or two before Keene Transfer station trail in poor shape. Here it is like riding on bad, uneven cobblestones. Speed 4 mph (too fast for this bouncy ride). From Transfer station heading east trail in good to excellent condition. Ave speed around 14 mph. Trail for entire journey is gentle in slope in an area of wildly varying topography. Very impressive achievement for the people that built this many years ago. My bike has tires of 1.75" wide. This is bare minimum width for Transfer Station to west. Plenty wide for Transfer station to east.

Ammonoosuc Rail Trail

Disappointed

August, 2020 by ccoker

Rode from Littleton to Lisbon. Trail is rough - large gravel that has been chewed up in places by off road vehicles. The scenery was great. Was hoping that the trail was more like others I’ve done that consisted of crushed gravel. You will want to use a mountain bike.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Enjoyable ride

August, 2020 by ccoker

Rode from Morrisville to Cambridge Junction and back. Enjoyable ride that follows the river and meanders through corn and forests. Be sure to check out the falls. Stopped at Lost Nation Brewery at the end to rehydrate¿¿

Hillsborough Recreational Rail Trail

Flat but a lot of loose sand

August, 2020 by boater1515

We biked this trail on hybrid bikes. The trail was flat but there were several areas that had loose sand. We walked the bikes along the airport due to the sand and loose gravel. We parked at the intersection of River Rd and Union St, the trail is right across the street from the pullout.

Lake Winnisquam Scenic Trail

very pleasant!

August, 2020 by lauriekeve

A real treat! Lovely views of lake for first 1/2 mi. Park at Osborne’s on Rte 3. Perfect for biking, although some sharp bends.
