The town of Haverhill has used ISTEA funding for the purchase of the Blackmount Branch as well as the available fragments of the previous abandonment that continues through Haverhill, Pike, and East Haverhill, for a total of some 9 miles of railroad bed. Unfortunately, some portions of this older right of way was previously sold for State highway and private purposes. However the town plans to utilize portions of lightly used town roads and snowmobile trails to connect these parcels to form a continuous multi-purpose trail!
Connecticut River Snowmobile Club currently uses many portions of this railroad bed for snowmobile trails. The portion of the roadbed south of Blackmount is part of NH Snowmobile Corridor #5. Snowmobile usage is also evident alongside Route 10 north of Cross Road in North Haverhill. However, potential trail users must remember that all trails maintained by the Club that cross private property are open only during snowmobile season.
The Lower Chohase Region Web Site provides community information for the Connecticut River Valley towns of Haverhill, Bradford, Piermont, and Newbury.
