Hillsborough Recreational Rail Trail connects three communities in south-central New Hampshire: Hillsborough, Deering, and Bennington. The unpaved trail winds along the Contoocook River through rural and wooded landscapes for nearly 8 miles. It follows a branch of the former Boston and Maine Railroad and in some places you can still see the rails; you'll also cross trestle bridges and pass the Bennington Depot.
Parking is available in Deering at the Deering Fish and Game Club. Follow Route 149 towards Deering, take your first right off Route 149 and travel about 2 miles; take the first right after the road turns to dirt and look for the parking signs on the right.
TrailLink is a free service provided by Rails-to-Trails conservancy
