Ashuelot Rail Trail

Hiking Trail

blank dot

The Ashuelot Rail Trail is a 21-mile long mostly unpaved pathway that extends from the City of Keene to a point south of Hinsdale in Southern New Hampshire. The trail follows the route of an abandoned railroad right-of-way and travels alongside the Ashuelot River through the beautiful New Hampshire countryside. It’s a popular trail for cross-country skiing, hiking, and horseback riding. The trail passes through scenic and historical landmarks such as covered bridges, abandoned mills, and postcard-perfect towns. Despite some sections being closed due to flooding, it remains a favorite among outdoor enthusiasts.
