The rail-trail is broken between Suncook and Browns Brook. Note that Pleasant Street (Pembroke), Broadway Street, Main Street (to the town line on the bridge) and Pleasant Street (Allenstown) are lightly used arterial streets that can be used to bypass this long gap.

ParkingRest RoomsDrinking WaterPicnic ShelterPicnic Area Pembroke Memorial Park serves as the trailhead for the rail-trail segment that runs north from Suncook. This full service recreational facility is located on the Merrimack River just north of the Suncook River, and can be reached via Broadway and Pleasant Streets. Note that parking problems might exist during organized games. Drinking water is presumably available within the building that houses the toilets.

FoodRest RoomsDrinking Water Three restaurants of various kinds were noted in the ancient business buildings on Main Street just north of the Suncook River Bridge. Toilets and water are presumably available upon request in each one. Unfortunately, the Webmaster failed to note whether any of these restaurants served breakfast.
