Village Spur Rail Trail Description

The Village Spur Rail Trail begins in downtown Belmont, and stretches from behind the Belmont Mill to the Tioga River on the west side of South Road. Out and back for the entire trail is about four miles. On your way you'll encounter two covered bridges: the first is located at the Slippery Rock crossing on the Tioga River. The second is found west of Great Brook Village.  Approaching South Road, the trail passes through pasture, so riders should keep to the path and have their pets leashed to avoid disturbing the cattle.

The Belmont Village Spur provided service to Belmont Village for four decades before being shuttered in 1929. The trail that sits atop this corridor is a reminder of the region's past, and there are plans to connect to another historic rail-trail, the Winnipesaukee River Trail, which runs between Franklin and Tilton.

Parking and Trail Access

Ample parking (including accessible parking) is available at the Belmont Mill (14 Mill Street, Belmont) and Tioga Pavilion (18 Mill Street, Belmont) adjacent to the Mill. There is no parking on the west side of the trail.

Utility road

Like the title says, it’s not really a trail, it’s a utility access road. Cool water creek runs along it though. Seen about 15 other people and dogs on the utility road also.
