July 3, 2020 – Ashuelot Rail Trail (Keene) – New Hampshire

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Ashuelot Rail Trail in Keene, New Hampshire.  The Asheulot Rail Trail is a 21 mile long Trail that starts in Keene and ends in Winchester.  The Trail passes through several covered bridges, old mills, and scenic towns.  The Ashuelot Rail Trail is popular for walking, biking, and snowmobiling.

We had a humid Adventure to the Ashuelot Rail Trail.  We began at the very beginning of this Trail in Keene, New Hampshire.  It took us a little time to locate it but eventually found it across from the Center at Keene parking lot on Emerald Street.  We began our walk, eager to explore another Rail Trail.

As expected, I found the Rail Trail somewhat dull and appealing.  It ran past some industrial buildings, parts of Keene College and then became a little farther away from the town.  The trail varied from paved to dirt, and had guests including:  bikers, walkers, and dog runners.  Along the way we found several bridges, lots of beautiful wildflowers, and plenty of squirrels and chipmunks to chase.  We spent about an hour walking, and searching for little details to appreciate.  We will have to come back another time to explore a different portion of the Ashuelot Rail Trail (Rating:  Trail will not be rated as only a small portion of the 21 miles was covered on this walk).
