Stevens Rail Trail Description

About a dozen miles west of Concord, the Stevens Rail Trail offers a quiet, wooded route along the former Concord-Claremont rail line in Contoocook Village. It starts off Krzyzaniak Road and continues for just over a mile, unpaved and scenic, to nearly the Warner town line. Expect to see water views, wildflowers, and wildlife on your journey.

In the winter, the trail is used and maintained by local snowmobilers.

Parking and Trail Access

From I-89 north or south, take exit 6 to Maple Street. Turn left at the first stop in Fountain Square and go over the stone bridge across Contoocook River. After the bridge, veer left at the Y-fork onto Kearsarge Avenue and take the second left onto Lower Spring Street. Take the first right onto Krzyzaniak Road; the trail entrance is off this road.

Stevens Rail Trail Reviews

This trail is in poor condition and was hard to find.

It needs some work and clean-up. As you travel it northward you probably need a mountain bike. Also, it is a bit short.
