Description

The Colebrook Riverwalk is a beautiful easy hiking loop along the Mohawk and Connecticut Rivers. It travels through riparian and floodplain forest and accesses the North Country Community Recreation Center and the Upper Coos Recreational Rail Trail. It is marked with brown and white signs.

From the municipal lot, the trails heads east along the south bank of the Mohawk River. At the Upper Coos Recreational Rail Trail, the River Walk turns right and crosses the old railroad bridge. Immediately after the bridge, the River Walk heads left into the riparian forests again and follows the north bank of the Mohawk River to its confluence with the Connecticut River. This section includes three benches for rest and interpretive signs labeling the vegetation along the trail. There is also an alternative route signed as the Long Loop. 

At the Connecticut River, the trail heads north along the river's edge. It then heads back to the Upper Coos Recreational Rail Trail along the edge of a field. The River Walk turns left at the rail trail then right at an ATV and snowmobile access trail and goes uphill to the North Country Community Recreation Center. At the Recreation Center, the trail skirts the edge of the lawn and enters the woods again parallel to the Recreation Center's access road. At Lynch road, the trails turns right, then enters the forest again on the left. It crosses a bridge then follows the north bank of the Mohawk River. It crosses a snowmobile bridge back to the municipal lot.
