Londonderry Rail Trail Description

The Londonderry Rail Trail will one day stretch 6 miles across Londonderry from Derry to Manchester, New Hampshire's largest city, along the former Manchester and Lawrence Railroad. As of December 2015, 3 miles of the trail are paved and open, offering beautiful woodland and wetland scenery.

Its new eastern endpoint lies about a mile north of the Derry Rail Trail. Both trails are part of a larger effort, the Granite State Rail Trail, which will span more than 100 miles and link several rail-trails across New Hampshire from Massachusetts to the Vermont border.

Parking and Trail Access

From Rockingham Road (Route 28), turn onto Sanborn Road; parking is available in the parking lot for North Londonderry Elementary School (19 Sanborn Road).

From I-93, take Exit 5, then Rockingham Road westward; turn right into the Park-and-Ride Lot.

Londonderry Rail Trail Reviews

Beautiful scenic trail, wide, not too crowded!

I truly enjoy this trail and noticed that graffiti was covered recently, however right after it was covered new graffiti was done😔. I wish there were security cameras in that area to catch whoever is doing this and heavy fines. We should be working together to make it better. Why ruin a nice trail?

Excellent trail however, it is a bit short. When it is eventually linked to Derry to the south and Manchester to the north it will be one of our states best trails.


I live at the beginning of the trail. There are always nice people on it. I run it almost daily. The scenery is nice and they just opened the second stretch into Derry.

We are so thrilled to have this trail. We live at the end of phase three on Seasons lane and look forward to its opening. We walk and bike the trail. It's fantastic to see others out enjoying it as well. It brings the community together Love the 603 tasting room in between as well :0


Well maintained, no grade paved trail. Easy to access from public parking. Now paved 2 miles - south to Liberty Road.
