Fall Foliage along the Concord Rail Trails

Fall Foliage along the Concord Rail Trails

During the month of October there are lots of ways to find and enjoy the beautiful colors of the fall foliage in New Hampshire.  One of the most creative ways to do this is at a brand-new location in Concord, New Hampshire.  Scenic RailRiders is located at 188 Sewalls Falls Rd in Concord, NH. 

RailRiders Tours

Enjoying the rail trails in NH has been a past time enjoyed by many on foot or by bicycle.  This location lets you actually ride the rails on their patented rail bike.  The wheels of this vehicle fit on the rails and the rider must pedal to propel the bike.  It’s great exercise and gets you right into the heart of the foliage.  Owner, Gary Leblanc fabricated the rail bikes himself and has a fleet that can accommodate a group or individual riders.  Guided rides are offered each weekend in the fall and daily during the summer months. 

The Trail

The route used by this company starts from a parking lot on Sewalls Falls Road and travels through farm land, over a trestle bridge and through wooded wilderness.  The trail is just over 6 miles in length and lets you get up close to the scenery and the history of the area from Concord to Boscawen.  A favorite stop is the Hannah Dustin Memorial in Boscawen.  The ride and associated stops takes about 2 hours to complete and is a lot of fun. 

New Hampshire is a Great Place to Call Home

Enjoying all the outdoor activities and adventures is what draws many people to call New Hampshire home.  If you are looking to move to the state you can find apartments at Red Oak Apartment Homes.  They are based in Manchester and have over 1700 apartments and single family homes in Milford, Merrimack, Manchester, Derry, Laconia and Boscawen NH.  Contact them for information.
