Description   EN   

We've long been intrigued by the Milford and Manchester Railroad that was only in use for a few short years.

A bit more information on the railroad (owned by the Boston and Maine Railroad) can be found here:
Nashua City Station: Manchester and Milford Branch
and here:
History of Goffstown, NH: Manchester and Milford Railroad

This cache is placed on the old railroad bed in Bedford, NH as it turns northeast to head into the center of Bedford. On some maps the railroad bed in this area is labeled as Bow Lane but there is no lane there today. :)

To get to the "trailhead" take Chestnut Drive off of Route 101. The trailhead waypoint is not really a trailhead but it is a break in the trees where you can start walking towards the cache. I parked in the cul-de-sac that is just east of the "trailhead".

You'll need to bushwhack in from the road as there is no trail but the bushwhacking isn't too bad. If you walk towards the cache co-ordinates from the "trailhead" and you stay to the north you'll see the railroad cut that first heads west and then curves towards the south. The cache isn't in the railroad cut (too much water)but it is near the cut.

Please put the cache back carefully where you find it.
