Join me for an easy 22-mile (round trip) pedal on the contiguous Salem, Windham, and Derry Rail Trails, located in southern New Hampshire. At 11 miles, these connected trails comprise the longest

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

We’ll meet at the Salem Municipal Parking Lot, at the corner of Main and Central Streets in Salem, NH.

From Boston and points south: Take the second NH exit off I-93 north—NH-38/NH-97/Salem. (Exit number was 2, but interstate exits are being renumbered. So don’t rely on that.) Bear right at the end of the exit ramp, and **follow Pelham Rd. about .4 mi. Continue onto Main St. for another .4 mi. Turn right on Central St. The lot will be on your right.

From points north/Nashua/Merrimack: Take I-93 south to the NH-38/NH-97/Salem exit (possibly exit 2, but don’t count on it!). Bear left at the end of the ramp, following signs for NH-38/NH-97/Salem. Then follow directions from ** above.

Note: The municipal lot is relatively small. If it’s full, park at the NH State Employment Dept., 29 S. Broadway. To get there from the municipal lot, go back up Central St. to Main St. Turn right, and then immediately right again onto S. Broadway. (Salem Cooperative Bank is on the corner.) The employment office is a short distance down Broadway on your left. Look for a “New Hampshire Works” sign in front. Meet the group at the municipal lot.
