The paving of this lovely shared use trail is nearing completion. Four and a half marked miles, and passable from end to end, it is heavily used compared to most other Merrimack Valley trails. On a Sunday, you will meet serious cyclists and soccer moms with strollers, but even on its busiest day there are long stretches of trail where you would swear it was you and the chipmunks listening to the water drip off the granite ledges.

The trail head for Windham’s Rail Trail is at the old Depot on Windham Depot Road. go figure.
When you see the big blue caboose you are there. The parking lot holds about 15 cars but the trail users are always coming and going quickly enough that spaces are always available.

The southern terminus is behind Cycles Etc on Rt 28. This is not an official trail head so parking during Cycles Etc peak hours would be considered rude and at your own risk.
