Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

MTN Bike or Gravel Bike

July, 2021 by geegee6519

Great ride, passed a few people on the narrow section of the trail, but had no problems passing each other. I rode the trail after a heavy 2 days of rain, so it was wet, lots of mud, large puddles of rain, it got a little dirty! LOL

Rockingham Recreational Rail Trail (Portsmouth Branch)

great trail

July, 2021 by vw7cghqxcg

Ran the length of the trail to set up a Fastest Known Time segment. Was surprised by how beautiful the whole trail was, and how much the flora changed throughout. Id like to go back at a slower pace and stop at some of the towns it crosses (like Raymond and Epping)

Farmington Recreational Rail-Trail

great for walking/running

July, 2021 by vw7cghqxcg

Didnt realize there was a rail trail that ran through Rochester/Farmington, and came upon it by accident. Rochester side has more parking, and a few short side trails in a nice little park. The trail is a mix of gravel, dirt, sand. Had no issues running the length of it.

Londonderry Rail Trail

great trail… can connect for longer rides!!

July, 2021 by geegee6519

Start at Londonderry (by airport) trail is 4.5 miles ends at A neighborhood… google the mile trek to Derry Trail Head - the Derry trail is 3.9 miles (make sure you stop at the Grind on the Rail Trail for lunch! In Derry!) then connects to the Windham Rail Trail which is 4.3 miles and will continue another 5 miles in Salem NH.

Salem Bike-Ped Corridor

Please update details

July, 2021 by dstopham

The paved and complete section is 2.0 miles long from the Windham Rail Trail to the Salem Main Street Depot. The next 1.3 miles are under development with CMAQ grants helping. The remaining distance to Methuen is not complete or funded but passable on a regrind surface. This 5.2 mile Salem corridor is the south link of the Granite State Rail Trail.

Border to Boston Trail

locally Danvers Rail Trail

June, 2021 by benjaminfamily

This is locally known as the Danvers Rail Trail, runs through Hamilton, then Topsfield, until it ends at I-95. Nice crushed stone from Danvers north, packed stone south, packed dirt in Topsfield. Sides of the trail near marshland are covered with poison ivy spring and summer. big roads with lights at 62, 97 (twice) route a joy to ride. Forest, water

Salem Bike-Ped Corridor

Connects to Windham and Derry Rail Trails

June, 2021 by mr0b1l

Nice trail, well maintained. Seamless connection to Windham and Derry trails

Border to Boston Trail

nice trail

May, 2021 by zt48cdpc6p

I love this trail, well maintained easy to ride and friendly people along the way. Thou I have not completed the entire trail, it’s definitely on my list of riding goals.

Dover Community Trail

love this trail

May, 2021 by s27dhr9fxp

I have not done the whole trail, but for an out of town cyclist, the section from the train station to fisher street is a stress free option to the narrow, crowded roads of Dover.

Sanford-Springvale Rail Trail

Wide Tires Are Best

May, 2021 by capekat777

Today marked my first time on the trail after moving to the area at the end of last year. Great for walking/hiking but not so much biking unless you have really wide, sturdy tires. Around the Lebanon line the trail seems to have been heavily sanded, which means very tough going for casual riders. Seasoned riders will appreciate the solitude and scenery. Next time I go I’ll likely walk.

Mountain Division Trail

Paved path that runs parallel to the tracks- an excellent ride for the family- some hills and a couple stops at intersecting roads. About 5 to 6 miles round trip.

Rockingham Recreational Rail Trail (Fremont Branch)

Started in Epping went as far as Fremont then back. 3 1/2 hours round trip. Nice views of wet lands and forest.
