This is a flat and straight rail-trail that is a hidden gem. It is a nature walk that during the spring and summer abounds with birds, butterflies, and wildflowers. Note that parts of the trail can be wet. Wear waterproof shoes/boots.

Nice if you’re looking for a quiet walk in the woods. It would be nicer if people picked up after their dogs.

Nice walk in the woods that can be extended by doing the entire loop.

This is no hardcore New Hampshire hike, however if you are looking for a hike in the woods without blazing a trail, this is a hood option. It's flat and straight but there are no real mountain views.

First to Review

Difficult to find, nothing much to speak of for hiking. There's a snowmobile trail that's a little nicer, but I wouldn't waste time on this.
