Recreational Rail Trails
All recreational rail trails are multi-use trails. Users of multi-use trails may include hikers, bikers, equestrians, OHRVs, snowshoers, cross-country skiers, and sled dogs.
Active Railroads MAY allow recreational use ONLY during the WINTER months on some lines. Dates for winter use are determined by the New Hampshire Department of Transportation.
Winter Use Only = when there is contiguous snow cover on the trails.
Please note: Different types of motorized usage are allowed at different times of the year on some multi-use trails. Please check to be sure your particular activity is allowed before using the trails.
Recreational Rail Trails with rails in place may have service-type equipment such as putt-putts or speeders using the rails when not snow covered.
If there is no designated parking, some parking may be available at road crossings. Please do not park in front of gates and pull safely off the road.
