THE VISION

Imagine a place where walkers, runners, bicyclists, wheelchair users, inline skaters, horseback riders, and more—of all ages and abilities—feel safe to move throughout the Souhegan Valley for transportation and recreation.

16+ miles of little-used railroad right through the heart of the Souhegan Valley are currently for sale creating a once-in-a-generation opportunity to incorporate a rail trail into the future of the rail corridor and provide a revolutionary connection for 6 towns. The Friends of the Souhegan Valley Rail Trail is an organization working to raise awareness of, advocate for, and identify ways to help make this dream a reality.
