I was at the other end of the Cotton Valley Rail Trail in Sanbornville earlier that day, where the historic RR turntable is in the aptly-named Turntable Park. I walked the trail a bit and saw quite a few bicyclists using it. It's a beautiful trail!

My husband & I travelled to New Hampshire in June 2022 to ride this trail for the first time. Seven miles into the trail, I was riding in between the rails & came to a switchback. My tire dropped down in between the black pad & the rail and the end result for me was a shattered elbows& a broken arm. Needless to say, a trip to the ER, surgery and months of OT & I am still in a bad place with my arm. I am an experienced cyclist and evidently many other cyclists have experienced a similar fate in this area. This trail needs a great deal of attention to make it safe. Perhaps it’s time to do something about it.

Treacherous spots on the trail where you must either get off of your bike or risk serious injury when your tire gets caught . My wife and I each fell at separate spots on the trail at these transition points. The solution is to stop, dismount, and walk to the other side, then remount and proceed to the next obstacle. Your momentum is completely disrupted, but that’s the price one must pay for safety. We have been riding rails to trails for over ten years and never. I repeat. Never have we encountered such slack disregard as what we met with on today’s ride. There are ample reasons why the rails get ripped up before opening these trails to bicyclists. I suspect in this case it is due to the interests of a small group of railcar enthusiasts that use the rail corridors for their joyriding hobby. For the rest of us, my advice is to stay completely clear of this one.

The NH Bureau of Trails has had ample warning that this trail is very dangerous! There are multiple reports of serious injuries and even airliftings on Traillink. Com. They should either fix it or prohibit bikes. Are they waiting for somebody to die?!

We biked parts of the trail several times over the weekend. It is a great way to get around and see the sites without a car. We went from Wolfeboro to Albee beach (no beach pass needed if you bike in) and Wolfeboro to the Wright Museum. The trail is well maintained and has beautiful scenery!

This trail was perfect to ride with family and kids. No cars and an easy flat trail with great view of the lake.

Jumped on this trail during a walk from our hotel on Lake Wentworth into Wolfeboro. It was a pleasant surprise. A really nice walk adjacent to Wolfeboro.

Trail is alongside an old railway tracks. Well maintained and easy walk. A lot of shaded areas. If you like to walk, run or bike, this is a great trail for you.

Went for nice walk on the trail which was scenic and very relaxing. We only walked a few miles of it but worth a visit.
