LITTLETON — The black bear didn’t know it, but it was an ambassador along a new stretch of the Cross New Hampshire Adventure Trail as it ambled down Railroad Street before darting into the woods.

Then, as we proceeded cautiously along the new 4.4 miles of rail trail in Littleton opened in May to steer cyclists off some of Route 116 thus avoiding two hills but not the biggest, the bear nonchalantly crossed the trail, gave us a disinterested look, and continued his stroll into the greenery.
