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 Spring 2021 with hopes of a ribbon cutting event in October. 


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.


We need your help to grow the New Boston Rail Trail



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. 

Visit The Rail Trail


To reach the Lang Station trail head, follow State Route 13 South for 3.9 miles, and turn right onto Gregg Mill Road. In less than 0.1 mile, the trail parking area and Lang Station will be on your left.

HCYC/4h fairgrounds trail head

Follow SR 13 S 5.9 miles, and turn right onto Hilldale Lane. Cross bridge to enter the Hillsborough County Youth Center* property. Follow Hilldale Lane along the river. Head north a few hundred yards to find signs for the trail. 

*Note that this is private property, though the youth center allows the public to park and access the trail during the day.
