Nor-Bath Trail


The Nor-Bath Trail follows the corridor of the Northampton and Bath Railroad, a short-line rail line that ran 8.5 miles between those towns for 77 years to serve the local cement industry’s connection to larger rail carriers. Heading west to east from the D&L trailhead, the Nor-Bath Trail passes through mostly open farmland, wooded areas, three recreational parks, and some residential areas before ending at the Keystone Cement Company quarry. Parts of the trail were resurfaced in 2020 and it is primarily shaded.
