Rail-Trails New England
Across the country, over 1400 unused railroad corridors have been converted to level, public, multiuse trails, where people can enjoy a brisk fitness walk, bike ride, or stroll with the family. In this newest edition in the popular series, the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy presents the best of the New England rail-trails.
With 60 rural, suburban, and urban trails threading through 622 miles, Rail-Trails New England covers Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut. Many rail-trails are paved and run through the most scenic parts of town, such as the 12-mile Island Line Trail in Burlington, Vermont, skirting the cityís waterfront before jutting 3 miles out onto a lake. Some delve into the particular history of an area, like the Massachusettsís Phoenix Rail-Trail, where the first naval battle of the American Revolution was fought offshore in 1775. Others offer an escape from city life, such as the East Bay Bicycle Path, Rhode Islandís first rail-trail, which runs 14 miles from Providence to Bristol and provides stunning views of Narragansett Bay.
This two-color book includes succinct descriptions of each trail from start to finish, plus at-a-glance summary information indicating permitted uses, surface type, length, and directions to trailheads for each trail.
Every trip has a detailed map that includes start and end points, trailheads, parking, restroom facilities, and other amenities.
Many of the level rail-trails are suitable for walking, jogging, bicycling, inline skating, wheelchairs, and horses.
