Phase II Construction has begun!
Please be aware that portions of the trail may be closed Monday through Saturday.
Watch for signs reading "Workzone Trail Closed"
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated to help us raise $102,000 for the
final phase of expansion of the New Boston Rail Trail!
Construction will begin in July 2021 with hopes of a ribbon cutting event in October.
PHASE I - COMPLETED
In 2017, New Boston completed 1.5 miles of uninterrupted, non-motorized, pedestrian recreational trail starting at the Hillsborough County Youth Center and leading to Lang Station on Greg Mill Road, following alongside the Piscataguog River.
PHASE II - UNDERWAY
Construction on the final 1.5 mile section from Lang Station trailhead to Parker Road trailhead will begin in Spring 2021 thanks to generous donors! This section of trail contains protruding tree roots and trip-laden terrain. 0.25 miles were completed in December 2018.
