Some challenging hills leads to Chester NH, a historic small town with a good General Store for lunch or a snack. Expect mostly wooded roads, old farms, and out-of-the-way historic districts such as North Danville. In the fall, Chester's scarecrow festival adds some local color. The short route doesn’t extend to Chester, but keeps to the back roads of Newton and Plaistow. Start will be the Amesbury Elementary School.
