The New Hampshire Heritage Trail is a 230-mile, walking trail that stretches across New Hampshire, from its border with Massachusetts to its border with Canada. Originally authorized by the New Hampshire State Legislature in 1988 (RSA #216-A:7), the Heritage Trail has been established and maintained by the communities that use it. Following the main stems of the Merrimack, Pemigewasset, and Connecticut Rivers, the trail showcases the historic and scenic communities along their banks and links those communities together. The trail is a great recreational resource, offering areas for walking, jogging, biking, or cross-country skiing for people of all ages and abilities. The New Hampshire Heritage Trail also provides environmental benefits to the participating communities by protecting the rivers, preserving the wildlife habitat, and maintaining the beauty of the natural landscape. The tourists who take advantage of the recreational resources offered by the trail are also adding to the economic vitality of the participating communities.
