Nashua River Rail Trail, Ayer Ma.

11 miles (one way) rail trail, extending from Ayer - NH border, going through 4 towns: Ayer, Groton, Pepperell, and Dunstable. Technically this trail extends into Nashua NH. I have done this trail once and it is nice...in fact I don't think I've come across a trail that is not nice ;0)

PARKING: Ayer Center parking lot (60 paved spaces)
Take Rte. 2 east or west to exit 38B, then follow Route 111 north to Ayer Rotary. Go halfway around rotary to Rte. 2A. On Rte. 2A turn right after Ayer Center, take first right on Groton Street to trail parking lot on the right.

The Nashua River Rail Trail travels along a varied landscape, offers numerous scenic overlooks, opportunities to see wildlife and has several resting stops. The trail is particularly attractive during fall foliage season. The Ayer trailhead offers access to commuter rail service between Boston and Fitchburg.

    Make sure you don't have other plans or commitments before you sign up for this. There is no reason you shouldn't remember your 'other' plans. Cell phones have a scheduler/calendar, smart phones have a scheduler/calendar, meetup has a calendar, if you have a computer with Windows 7 that comes with post it notes program so you can put reminders on your desktop and you see it everyday (I remember my bills using this) and if not you can dnload a program for Win XP. There are paper post it notes. Most people have monthly calendars on their walls or doors. Thank you and have a nice day on your activity.

    Remember to dress in layers, hopefully the weather stays in the 60's if not mid 50's, if it gets into 40's it might be cancelled as it gets too cold with the wind on ya when riding.
