    Default Northern Trailhead

    Can folks confirm if this is the northern trailhead for the NET near Royalston Falls?
    42°42'56.7"N, 72°15'21.1"W

    This was taken from Google Maps, and I've heard that the actual trailhead may not be a bit down the road.

    Just trying to get all my ducks in a row, Thank You!

    The coordinates you gave appear to be where the trail crosses Hwy 32.

    Here is a link to an interactive map.

    Zoom in near the start of the trail,,and you’ll see where Hwy 32 crosses the trail.

    There’s some details in the NET website that gives directions to the terminals

    Here is a website with interactive maps for each section of the trail.

    https://newenglandtrail.org/find-a-hike/

    The section referenced by the OP is MA NET:SECTION 19

    A parking lot is shown off Hwy 32 where the trail crosses.

    Someone didn't do their homework. Amtrak doesn't stop in Guilford. You'd have to switch to a local (Shoreline East) train from New Haven or New London.

    The above GPS coordinates are accurate to get you to the Royalston Falls trailhead parking lot, which is where the NET crosses.

    I just shuttled Insider over to East Street trailhead from Mountain (Skinner SP) Road after taking him for a resupply.
