Description

This 3-mile trail (sometimes known as the Mason Rail Trail) begins on the east side of NH-31 in Greenville and ends near Pratt Pond in Mason. The trail follows a heavily-wooded corridor through Russell State Forest. The trail, although shorter than most, provides beautiful views of small ponds fed by the Souhegan River.

Snowmobiles are permitted in winter.

Trail Tips

Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
Stick to established trails and campsites. If there's no trail, try to walk on rock, gravel, or snow and spread out so that your group doesn't create a trail.
