  • Wide range of uses. Easy parking at a variety of spots along trail - Ayer trailhead has a 60 spot lot and trailhead in NH has a large lot as well.

  • 25mi to Ayer and back. It's flat and paved with minimal frost heaves. There a good coffee place for a midway break at the end in Ayer.
  • 12.4 miles from Ayer MA to Nashua NH. Great scenery and wildlife including fish, turtles, ducks, beavers. Mixed use for walking/running, biking, rollerblading, horseback. Plenty of parking along the trail with large lot at both ends.
