What are the best parks in Hillsborough County?

Bonus points if there are dedicated bike paths or bike lanes.

Around in the Monadnocks, we tend to think of "parks" as some hill or mountain to climb, like Miller State Park. Longer bike routes tend to be rails to trails. You might google a bit to see what piques your interest.

This is probably a stupid question, but what is rails to trails?

Not a bad question at all. Many longer bike paths throughout the US are former railroad lines. To convert them to a trail, someone needs to remove the rails and the crossties, then make a smooth surface by putting down fine gravel or asphalt.

There are a number of these in new england, and books published, but the best I found was a book listing abandoned tracks.
