Parking with a trailer is limited to trail entrance (only 1) or up the road off rail trail (also small area with limited turnarounds). Trails here are well marked and clear. There are areas with a lot of roots so doing more than a walk is difficult. Few water crossings but no bridges.

Gorgeous trail! It was difficult to find the trailhead at first. The best trailhead to start with would be down the road from the parking lot where it says Harry Rich forest. The other trailhead was way down the rail trail on the left. I would skip the part of the loop on this map that goes into the subdivision next time. The river portion has the best views. Also saw several pairs of nesting swans. Spectacular!

I run on here almost every day. Not too buggy. It keeps me out of the sun. It has nice views of the Nashua river. Perfect for me..(-:

Great place to walk your dogs most of it is off leash.

Took my two teenagers and their two friends who had not kayaked before. Was a very nice paddle for anyone. Was easy even against a slight current and plenty to explore for those who like to wander off the main stream. We went for a sunset paddle and they had a blast.
