Charles Martin & NH Rail Trails

Talk about New Hampshire Rail Trails


Saturday, August 12 at 1 pm



Presented by author Charles Martin and Tim Blagden

"This book defines the term “definitive.” It is the most complete and accurate description of all New Hampshire’s rail trails. It is a must for anyone who wants to explore the beauty of New Hampshire by bike. "

Alex Bernhard Vice President of Friends of the Northern Rail Trail in Merrimack County


In the 19th Century, New Hampshire was an industrial state. The state participated in the latest technology, railroads, which covered all regions of the state. Most of the railroads are gone now, and the train tracks have been converted to pedestrian and bicycle trails.


Charles Martin spent 10 years exploring all the rail trails. His book, New Hampshire Rail Trails, acts as both a guide to help you find and enjoy them, and as a historical resource indicating how the railroads were used. Tim Blagden has been instrumental in helping towns along the Concord & Claremont Railroad corridor (including Warner) to build a trail from Concord to Lake Sunapee.



 Charles will give an overview of the state’s rail trails. Find out how to bicycle, walk, or ski on these scenic paths undisturbed by car and truck traffic. Tim will describe the Concord to Lake Sunapee trail and the current status of development of this path which will go through Warner.
