Abandoned and smoothed railbed, nearby flat from Lebanon to Grafton NH, approx 25 miles, with trail continuing another 30 miles to Boscawen. Parallels Mascoma Lake, various rivers through mature forests. No cars. Great for families & dogs. Stop at eateries, swimming spots.

I run on this trail every week. Take off from downtown Lebanon and head out to Mascoma Lake or keep going to Mickey's Café in Enfield! Safe, easy, flat trail that is great for biking or running

My son and I enjoyed to level hiking trail. Perfect for reflections on how it might have been when the railroad was huffing and puffing steadily along the rails.

While the trail is still a bit sloppy this Spring (assuming it ever happens), transitioning from snow mobiles and skis to walking and joggers, it's still a beautiful hike out of Lebanon, along the Mascoma River, up past Mascoma Lake, and on to Canaan. So...More

I can vouch that there are stores in Lebanon (the beginning), Enfield, Canaan, Grafton and Danville. I can't say past that.
