Mascoma River Greenway Description

The Mascoma River Greenway is a planned 4-mile non-motorized pathway through the heart of Lebanon. The trail is envisioned to link West Lebanon to the Northern Rail Trail, which spans more than 50 miles.

In 2013, the first mile was completed stretching west from the intersection of High, Mascoma and Mechanic streets. Another phase, starting in 2017, saw the paving begin for a 2.1-mile segment that will cover this first mile, up to the intersection of Mechanic Street and Glen Road. The trail traces the route of the former Boston & Maine Railroad through the town, bringing residents closer to the river and to the flora and fauna that surround it. The trail is also a connector to various destinations ranging from schools and shopping to parks.

Four bridges along the route will be repaired as part of this trail project. You can follow the construction progress on the Mascoma River Greenway website.

Parking and Trail Access

Mascoma River Greenway can be accessed at various points along its length, but its eastern starting point is at the junction of High, Mascoma and Mechanic Streets in downtown Lebanon. Just east of this endpoint, parking is available along Colburn Park (51 N. Park St., Lebanon).

On the other end of the trail, parking is available in Riverside Park (103 Glen Road, West Lebanon), located 0.4 miles west of the western endpoint of the trail; note that this requires on-road riding along Glen Road to go from the park to the trail.

Great Spot

I ran on this trail with my husband and children. Very stroller friendly path and very popular. There were many other people on the trail, which we didn’t mind. This could be due to the newly warm weather. Goes across several bridges and bodies of water. Picnic tables and benches along the way. Very scenic and excellent for a nice run. People were walking, roller blading, running, and riding their bikes. I definitely plan on coming back!

Mascoma River Rail Trail

Great 2.5 mile paved trail. Easy to get to from the end of the NRT. Its all downhill from Lebanon center trail head, but the grade is not too steep, and biking back wasn't too hard, just a bit slower than going out. The trail is new and in great shape. Very scenic. Handy ice cream stand visible from trail head. We biked it on Sunday Memorial Day weekend, then did a portion of the NRT.
