A part of each route rambles back and forth across the Nashua River Rail Trail.  The Nashua River Rail Trail opened in 2002 and follows the former Hollis branch of the Boston and Maine Corp. railroad for 11 miles through the towns of Ayer, Groton, Pepperell and Dunstable, with a 10-foot wide paved surface for the entire length. The trail travels along a varied and scenic landscape, and no motorized vehicles are allowed. The Nashua River Rail Trail opened in 2002. Trail Map
