This 25 mile former rail line connects Manchester and Newfields. Visitors to Raymond can access the trail near the Lamprey River Elementary School on Old Manchester Road and enjoy a walk to Onway Lake. As of 2014, the Town of Raymond was making plans to purchase and improve a former Greenfields site on Depot Road that would connect the Rockingham Trail, Down Town Raymond, and the Lamprey River.

This town-owned parcel is part of 2000 acres of undeveloped forests and wetlands, just south of Pawtuckaway State Park. The trail is flat-to-hilly, but it has no major elevational changes. Expect to get your feet wet along the trail and crossing streams. For a map of this site, please click here. To get to the parking area, take Route 27 to Harriman Hill Road.
