A long and easy ride across southern New Hampshire on a converted railroad bed. The Newfields Rail-Trail is typical rail-trail fare: easy, level riding past towns and through forests. At 26.0 miles one-way, it is a long ride, but the good riding surface means it can be completed in only three or four hours if you spot a car at each end. At times the scenery is less than appealing—you cross many roads and pass through developed areas—but you are rewarded with long stretches passing through oak-hickory forests and along lakes and beaver ponds. These wilder settings provide opportunities to spot wildlife such as great blue herons, white-tailed deer, and wild turkeys. You will also experience the less-wild excitement of riding under some of the busier roads and through metal culverts.

Nice trail surface, easy riding with long wooded sections,ponds. You can ride over to Manchester and back. Easy access to variety of single track trail rides nearer to Manchester.

Averaged only 7 miles per hour from Newmarket to Candia in 3 hours with stops. Terrain was soft & uphill for ~ 6 miles between Raymond & Candia. Very nice bridges & water bodies. As with other rail trails you always have to pedal. Hope to make it to Lake Massabesic next time.
