All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted to public multiuse trails. Here, the experts from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy present the best of these rail-trails—as well as other multiuse pathways—in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
Bucket-listers won’t want to miss Vermont’s 13.4-mile Island Rail Trail, which boasts a spectacular 2.7-mile marble causeway crossing Lake Champlain. Those who like short and sweet might check out the 2.1-Eastern Promenade Trail showcasing Portland’s Casco Bay and Portland Harbor, or for lengthier adventures, New Hampshire’s 58-mile Northern Rail Trail—the longest rail-trail in the state—offers a variety of wooded landscapes, waterside enjoyment, and welcoming small towns. Whether you’re on your feet, wheels, or cross-country skis, there’s something for everyone in this collection of multiuse trails in Northern New England.
