Upper Valley Lake Sunapee Region Rail Trails

The Upper Valley Sunapee Region is home to several rail trails. A rail trail is an old railroad bed that has been converted to a trail for public use. Some rail trails are open to motorized uses, such as snowmobiles and OHRV's, while others are just for walkers and bicyclists.

Update: the State of NH is undertaking a State Rail Trails Plan. Click here for more information.
