The Quincy Rail-Trail is part of the Snowmobile trail system maintained by the Rumney Trail Busters. As such, this trail is officially closed during the warm months of the year. Note that local information about the club and its trails should be available during business hours at McLeod's small engine shop, located in a red barn on Fairgrounds road about half-way between the Cooksville Road and Loon Lake Road trailheads. Trail maps are sometimes available in local stores for $2.00 each.

Three portions of the Rail-trail are apparently usable during the warm weather months:
