    Nashua River Rail Trail (NH)

    just a little plug for this lovely trail. 12 miles each way if you start in Ayer, MA and head North, seemingly downhill in ea direction. pavement in good condition. some bumps and many were marked with white spray paint. light traffic this past Saturday. shaded, so even if its hot and sunny w no clouds you can enjoy this trail. wifey and I did it in 2 hrs w a brief stop in Pepperell for an ice cream (red awning). slim pickin's though, don't count on a charming lunch spot anywhere, bring snacks or lunch.

    Hi - concur with your assessment of NRRT. It isn't totally bereft of of casual food sources however (although "charming" could be pushing it in some cases )

    In East Pepperell there is Charlotte's Cozy Kitchen across the street.

    In Groton, peel off at the Broadmeadow crossing. Rt 119, Main St is a hundred yards or so away. In the vicinity (within a quarter mile) is a pizza place, the Main St Cafe, Dunkin Donuts and a convenience store (stopped there myself Sunday for snacks and water).
