For the many supporters of the Londonderry Rail Trail project, the first mile began with some very eager steps Saturday afternoon.

The trail’s first completed mile opened with much fanfare during a ceremony held in the North Elementary School parking lot, which is the location of the Sanborn Road trailhead.

Dozens of residents, along with various state and town officials, braved the chilly temperatures to walk the maiden mile, with others perched on bicycles or walking their family dogs.

The first mile of completed rail trail, which was finished in mid-November, runs from Symmes Drive at Exit 5 to Sanborn Road.
