The Nashua River Rail Trail is a 12-mile trail connecting Ayer, MA to Nashua, NH. It is a former railroad right of way that travels 11 miles through the towns of Ayer, Groton, Pepperell, and Dunstable. The trail offers a 10-foot wide paved surface for the entire length and a five-foot wide gravel equestrian path for seven miles of the trail from Groton Center to the New Hampshire border in Dunstable. The entire trail is open to pedestrians, bicyclists, inline skaters, wheelchairs, and cross-country skiers. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved asphalt and typically ten feet wide. The grade is gentle (all estimated under 3%) so most wheelchair and stroller users will likely be able to traverse this trail.Show more
