Nashua River Rail Trail

Beautiful trail

October, 2017 by grubb.stephanie

This is a great trail to get a few miles in on a bike. The trail is flat and well maintained. There are plenty of pretty spots along the way for taking breaks.

Northern Rail Trail

Connection of 2 bike trails

October, 2017 by mtyblueballs

Couple of week ago I took the Winnipesaukee River Trail from my house in Northfield to Franklin and while biking route 3 I came across the Northern Rail Trail going southbound to Concord, then biked back. It was a nice 40 mile bike ride round trip. Next year I would like to bike northbound from the Winnipesaukee River Trail to the North Rail Trail northbound to West Lebanon NH. My only concern is where to connect onto this trail so I am not back tracking too far. I have driven route 11 beside the trail to find the best access to get on after getting off the Winnipesaukee River Trail. Any suggestions or best route would be great. Love both trails and plan to bike them more next season.

Dover Community Trail

Needs some work

October, 2017 by jnich8888

We started at the southern end, and the trail was great for a short ride. Then we got to the railroad station parking lot and could not find the rest of the trail. We rode down Forth st to the bridge and there was no trail that we could find. Look like the trail has a lot of potential to run along the river, and the paved short section we rod on was nice. Had a huge sub at Dougs Hoagies across the street from the Railroad station.

Mason Railroad Trail

Autumn Trail Ride

October, 2017 by ryoung_tl

10/27/2017
Easy to locate by following directions on the trail page.
Park on Rt 23, Mason Rd.- dirt lot on the left. It is a half mi to trailhead on Morse Rd. The orange barrier is about 100 yards in from the road on the left, so if the leaves have not yet fallen, it may be difficult to see, but it should be rather obvious that the trail is there. A very short section also goes further south towards Townsend.
10.4 miles to the Mason Village depot. Average grade 2.8% going northbound. Therefore, you are going up hill, but you hardly notice. The road surface of crushed gravel, as a base, is very flat. With each crossing of a motor vehicle roadway, there are barriers and signs to warn you.
The trail is in excellent shape with some water across the trail, probably collecting in depressions caused by ATVs. This occurs beyond Pratt Pond at the top of the hook, but not so difficult that one cannot get around them. It was probably more obvious due to severe rain over the past 48 hrs.
Nice vistas and scenery along the way. At approximately 4 miles from the trailhead, there is a granite quarry loop on the left. I did not take it, so can offer no report.
At the end of the trail (9 miles), you will encounter a barricade that marks the intersection with Rt. 31. You should walk down to the highway and then you can ride on Rt 31 (take a left) to reach Old Wilton Road on your right. There is a bridge to cross. It is one more mile to the old depot in the center of town. Be careful on Rt. 31. Large trucks go very fast.
This trail is historically significant in that Henry David Thoreau, on September 6, 1852, rode this line (Peterboro’ & Shirley Railroad) from Ayer (Groton Junction at the time) [after riding the Fitchburg line from Concord to Ayer]. Reaching Mason Village (Greenville), he walked to Peterborough, stayed the night and continued on to the summit of Grand Monadnock, on foot. Later in the day, he descended to Troy, NH, and returned the same day to Concord, via the Cheshire RR, and, at Fitchburg, the Fitchburg RR.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Trail is finished! :)

October, 2017 by equinox43

The gap in the map can be closed. It is now possible to run, bike, walk, etc. from Turntable Park in Sanbornville to the Wolfeboro Depot. Just use caution when crossing Route 16 (White Mountain Highway) at the Miss Wakefield diner, Route 109 (Governor Wentworth Highway) at Fernald Station, and Route 28 in Wolfeboro.

The section from Clark Road out to Cotton Valley was completed during late summer and early fall of 2017. From Cotton Valley to about the Brookfield town line (the old W8/S4 mile marker post) is mostly between the rails (although there are a few sections beside the rails). From Cotton Valley, about the first mile is slightly downhill. From there it is fairly flat to Clark Road.

From the Brookfield line to Clark Road is mostly outside the rails.

Out near the W9/S3/B100 mile post there are a couple of picnic tables next to the trail.

In the late spring and early summer, the deer flies in the section from Cotton Valley to Clark Road can be very thick.

Get out and enjoy the completed trail!

Abominable surface, where you can pass, is very narrow and obstructed. A real waste of time and a disappointment.

bennington rail trail

October, 2017 by k8sl

Terrible for bikes. Lots of dead fall, trash and railroad ties. 1/2 mile from "trailhead" there is a huge locked gate (chain link) which means you back track and ride through town to get to the other side of the river

Mass Central Rail Trail

Beautiful soft running trail

October, 2017 by alicemark.md

This is a lovely quiet running trail with a smooth, wide, soft dirt surface. Park in the lot off of Thomas Street and then run - it's a slight incline going up that you don't notice until you turn around and come back and are cooking. An absolutely beautiful run through the forest and next to water!! No dogs allowed in some sections so leave the pupper at home.

Mass Central Rail Trail

Dogs Allowed (in spots)

October, 2017 by bolts222

While there are portions of the frail where dogs are not allowed there are other portions where you CAN bring your dog. The area of the trail between Barre and Rutland is dog friendly. From the parking lot off of Rt. 140 in West Boylston you can bring a dog about half way up that portion of the trail. The dog walking portion is about a mile and a half each way.

Farmington Recreational Rail-Trail

Challenge For Cross Bikes

September, 2017 by tigersharkdude

I read the reviews and we gave it a shot. Started at the Farmington end and right away it was a very bumpy ride over the stone rail bed. Trail looked like it was used very little with tall grass and branches covering it. There was also a huge 18" limb fallen from a white pine that crossed the trail. One section was loose 4 -5" stone at that point we walked our bikes about 1/8 mile until the trail firmed up again. Other sections were deeper sand that was a major do-able pedal. Once reaching Rochester we decided to take Rt. 11 back to the car as the ride was not real enjoyable and there was very little to look at - probably because we did not dare to take our eyes off the trail dodging rocks and branches most of the way. 6 miles felty like 16 miles. Remember we our in our late 50's and rode a rigid cross bike and a front suspension comfort bike. If we try this trail again we will take our more aggressive mountain bikes.

Nashua River Rail Trail

Great trail

Great trail. It's a solid distance with few stop signs. It does need maintenance in some parts as tree roots are making it bumpy but other than that it's solid.

The gap in the trail map can now be closed. The trail is open all the way to Rt 16 and beyond. We road from Wolfeboro to Rt 16 where the trail comes out near the Ms. Wakefield Diner. A beautiful ride from start to finish. There is some history to explore in the new section such as a family cemetery and a gorgeous stone wall that once was part of a dam and the remnants of the old barn behind it. Have fun riding and exploring the beauty of this trail.
