Flat and wide trails criss-cross the state through woodland, past ponds, along rivers, over historic bridges and between charming small towns. Often separated from road traffic by miles, these routes once carried steam trains but now offer tranquility and a way to explore New England like never before.

We're on a mission to explore and review every rail trail featured on our map, where we provide detailed information on each route including mapping and photography. Check out our latest rail trail reviews here. Our rail trail maps are a combination of desktop research and fieldwork. Be aware that information on any rail trails that we've not yet reviewed should be regarded as approximate and subject to clarification. Follow Trailspotting to be notified as we continue to review New England's rail trails.
