A fun ride along a picturesque lake with distant mountain views—an especially great trip for families. The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail is not your typical bike path. This 10-foot-wide ribbon of asphalt is in many ways its own community. A trip up and back on any day will bring you into contact with people who are in-line skating, skateboarding, riding scooters, biking, jogging, and walking. Families come here as much as solo riders, and nearly everyone has a friendly greeting for passersby. The two parking areas are spacious, with universally accessible composting toilets. Picnic tables and benches are placed along the route at scenic places to make the trip even more appealing.
