This is a loop connecting 3 bike/pedestrian paths. I started at Bolton Notch but technically, since it is a loop, you can start anywhere and go in either direction. The East Coast Greenway (ECG) is a paved bike path but the others are crushed cinder. There are two small sections of road to navigate between the ECG and Cheney Rail Trail and Cheney RT to Hop River Trail. The course has smooth footing and lots of great historical signs along the way. 

Note that on the course map I took a slight wrong turn on the south end of the Cheney Rail Trail and had to retrace my steps adding about .25 of a mile to the loop.
