PHASE I - COMPLETE
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.
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!
PHASE II - COMPLETE
Construction on the final 1.5 mile section from Lang Station trailhead to Parker Road trailhead began in Spring 2021 and was completed in Fall 2021 thanks to generous donors!
