Description   EN   

This cache is part of the Ghost Train series of caches along the route of the old Milford to Manchester Railroad. We've long been intrigued by the Milford and Manchester Railroad that was only in use for a few short years. A list of this series can be found at the bookmark:

Ghost Train Series


This cache is placed on the old railroad bed in Goffstown. The railroad bed served as the base for Route 114 in a few places but here they are separate.


The best place to park is at the parking waypoint just off of Shirley Hill Road, but if you do park off the Route 114 shoulder, but please be very careful as this can be a busy road.

Please no night caching as there have been some breakins at a nearby junkyard.


I've added a Trailhead waypoint below that will give you access to the railroad bed without having to cross any swampy area.


A bit more information on the railroad (owned by the Boston and Maine Railroad) can be found here:
