The Nashua River Rail Trail is a 12.5-mile paved mixed-use rail trail in northern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire under control of the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.

The trail is frequently used by walkers, bicyclists, inline skaters, and, in the winter, cross-country skiers.
