On a beautiful October Sunday afternoon, I joined my sister and Connecticut friends on a leisurely stroll along the New Boston Rail Trail. The trail is 4.5 mile long and is located on the former bed of the Boston and Maine Railroad. The trail runs along the Piscataquog River and offers opportunities for fishermen.
The railroad would transport milk to three hotels in Boston owned by J. R. Whipple of New Boston. The train would return with food scraps for animals. The trail is undergoing a three year renovation project by the NB RailTrail Committee and the portion we hiked was in excellent condition.
