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¿¿

Beebe Spur Rail Trail

Short, but sweet.

August, 2020 by bill.mason7680

The trail is in very good condition with one exception. The last mile heading north has been reduced to two narrow single tracks. It needs resurfacing before nature totally reclaims it. That being said, it's still smooth and easy to ride. There are lots of openings in the trees along the trail with beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Ample designated trail parking at the hospital next door. It was a nice end to a day spent in the general Newport/Derby area.

Lincoln Woods Trail

Fun ride

August, 2020 by rmkeiser

The trail is a continues incline but not steep. There are quite a few railroad ties after the first mile but the there is room to go around in most places. Effortless return due to the down slope.

Upper Coos Recreational Trail

Upper Coos Recreational Trail

August, 2020 by bholdsworth7

The trail starts in Colebrook, NH and ends at Beecher Falls, just past Stewartstown, NH. One way distance is @9.5 miles. You would want to use a gravel bike or a mountain bike. The trail is easy to follow to the end. The scenery is spectacular as you follow the Connecticut River. There are 2 easy to navigate road crossings and at the end we went up to look at the Canadian border. For the way back, we rode VT102 thru Canaan all the way to RT26 (Bridge ST) that crossed back over the river into Colebrook. One note, there are ATV's on the trail. We saw a few. Everyone was very respectful of us by slowing down or waiting until we passed by. Can't say everyone would be that way, but today it was a wonderful experience. Be sure to bring water and snacks too.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Rode East to West trail is mostly cinder and well maintained crossing Route 2 in West Danville is dangerous VT drivers do not give way, Joe's Pond is a great place for a dip and a meal, next time I will end there for both.

Lamoille Valley Rail Trail

Overall a good trail

July, 2020 by potterdunn

I rode most of the western half of the trail and found it to be enjoyable. On the plus side, it is scenic, wide enough in most spots to allow riders in both directions, not overly crowded, very manageable hills, and mostly well marked. On the negative side, the gravel is looser than many trails I’ve been on, there are no benches to sit and take a break, and surprisingly, the trail is more wide open than I anticipated. It was up around 90 the day I rode it and it would have been uncomfortable if it wasn’t overcast. And being more open, there wasn’t as much wind protection as found in more forested trails. But overall, it is an enjoyable trail.

Lincoln Woods Trail

Excellent hike / walk to Franconia Falls

July, 2020 by lhart2015

We had a great time on this flat trail, which does have some old railroad tires and nails popping up along the way. Using “Map My Walk” it was 7.12 miles from the parking lot to the falls and back. The falls are very refreshing, with a few safe still pools to cool off in! Highly recommend this trail! You can also visit other side trails off this one, including Black Pond which we do next time!

Blackmount Rail Trail

trail closed but has a detour

July, 2020 by daninha21

This trail is closed now summer/2020 but it has a detour. It’s basically riding the back roads all the way to Walmart, and Shaw’s where you can go on another trail. That trail is not suitable for wide UTVs because of the metal posts.

Ammonoosuc Rail Trail

metal posts throughout the trail

July, 2020 by daninha21

I have a Polaris ranger crew and it can’t really use this trail because of the metal posts. It’s a pain to try to get through.
