    Cynthia Mascott
    "The Ashuelot Railroad opened this line in 1851, offering service between East Northfield in Massachusetts and Keene, New Hampshire. The line was owned by the Connecticut River Railroad until 1860 and then belonged to the Cheshire Railroad until 1877. It was sold back to the Connecticut River Railroad, and in 1893 became the property of the Boston & Maine Railroad. Passenger service was available until 1953. This charming 21.0-mile trail is very pretty and well worth exploring. It passes by the Ashuelot River and through New Hampshire farm country. The surface is sandy at times until it reaches Keene State University, where the trail is much better maintained." Read more
