Trailhead

There is no designated parking, however some parking is available at road crossings. Please do not park in front of gates and pull safely off the road.

Northern trailhead: From the Jaffery post office, turn left onto NH-124/Turnpike Road, then turn left immediately onto Oak Street and continue for 0.2 miles. Turn left onto Webster Street and continue for 400 feet and the rail trail will be on the left just after the parking lot for the American Legion.

Description

From Jaffrey to Rindge the trail is packed gravel, except for a paved section at the start in Jaffrey. The trail includes signage and beautiful views of ponds and wetlands. From Rindge toward Massachusetts the trail is still undeveloped and is mostly packed gravel and sand, with some railroad ties still in place. The trail is great for biking; however, mountain bikes are highly recommended because of the varying surfaces. 

The trail crosses busy NH-202, so use caution at those road crossings. 

It is also possible to continue south on the trail from New Hampshire/Massachusetts border, but the trail is not maintained so be prepared for an adventure. 

NOTE: Off-Highway Recreational Vehicles allowed in winter only.
