Upper Coos Recreational Trail Description

The wildly scenic Upper Coos Recreational Trail parallels the Connecticut River, which divides New Hampshire and Vermont. The rail-trail begins in Colebrook and travels north to Beecher Falls near the Canadian border.

As the railroad tracks are still in place, you’ll need to use caution. The unpaved trail is best used for hiking and horseback riding in the warmer months. In the winter, the trail is popular for snowmobiling, cross-county skiing, and mushing.

Parking and Trail Access

A parking area is available on Route 3. On street parking is available in Stewartstown and in Colebrook.

Upper Coos Recreational Trail

The trail starts in Colebrook, NH and ends at Beecher Falls, just past Stewartstown, NH. One way distance is @9.5 miles. You would want to use a gravel bike or a mountain bike. The trail is easy to follow to the end. The scenery is spectacular as you follow the Connecticut River. There are 2 easy to navigate road crossings and at the end we went up to look at the Canadian border. For the way back, we rode VT102 thru Canaan all the way to RT26 (Bridge ST) that crossed back over the river into Colebrook. One note, there are ATV's on the trail. We saw a few. Everyone was very respectful of us by slowing down or waiting until we passed by. Can't say everyone would be that way, but today it was a wonderful experience. Be sure to bring water and snacks too.
