Trailspotting has published complete rail trail maps for the states of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, uniquely showing them in context of the live rail network and long-gone routes of yesterday.

Green lines on our map indicate rail trails that are enjoyed daily by hikers, bicyclists, equestrians and many other types of user. We link in our maps to our trail reviews and official trail websites if you want to know more. The black lines indicate live rails - please remember that walking along railroad track is not only illegal but dangerous, including track that you might believe to be inactive. Historic rail routes are shown as gray lines, many of which cross private property that are not accessible to the public. Note that our maps are a combination of desktop research and fieldwork and errors may crop up occasionally.

Trailspotting continues to explore and review rail trails throughout New England, where we provide detailed information on each route including mapping and photography.
