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.
