The section of the Boston & Maine Railroad bed in the town of Warren is open for public use on a year-around multi-purpose basis. The town tax map inside the Selectmens' Office shows that the southernmost mile or so is town owned, the northernmost half-mile or so is owned by the White Mountain National Forest, while the long middle section is State owned. The trail is maintained by the Asquamchumaukee Valley Snowmobile Club as part of NH Snowmobile Corridor #5.
The Rail-trail apparently extends through the White Mountain National Forest to the Haverhill-Benton Town Line, except where highway reconstruction for the Olivarian Flood Control impoundment has destroyed the railroad bed. The breakdown lanes on Route 25 as well as a rough trail through the woods can be used to bypass this break in the railroad bed.
A chapter describing the construction of the railroad from the History of Warren written by William Little in 1870.
