Follow This Abandoned Railroad Trail For One Of The Most Unique Hikes In New Hampshire

Hard as it is to believe nowadays, back in a long gone era New Hampshire was home to quite an extensive railway network. Of course, many of those railroads stopped running long ago, replaced by highways and the drudgery of long driving commutes. But in their place they’ve left behind a real treasure – some wonderful trails for bicycling, walking, skiing, and more. Way up in New Hampshire’s North Country you’ll find the most remarkable of these trails – a true hidden gem that rewards all who explore it.
