Gravel routes in New England

(1/1)

Looking for recommendations for 2 to 3 days (1 or 2 nights) gravel / forest / single track routes for solo bikepacking within 4 hours driving from Boston.

I do not want to see many cars if any. One of the reasons I'm getting into gravel riding is that I am scared of road cycling, too many distracted drivers nowadays, I can't enjoy riding if I constantly worry about the possibility of getting hit from behind.

The Northern Rail Trail from Concord to Lebanon is 100km of uninterrupted sweet ride: https://mcccxxv.wordpress.com/2017/08/12/northern-rail-trail

Thanks for the NH tip, I did not know this one.
Did not know seekingdirt, seems helpful.

Cross Vermont and Cross New Hampshire trails are each, mostly gravel, dirt, single track.  They actually touch in Wells River VT. Woodsville, NH which are across the Connecticut river from each other.  VT runs about 90 miles to Burlington; NH runs about 80 miles to Bethel ME.  There are state and commercial campgrounds on each, and places to stealth camp.  Each has a website with maps, trail info, etc. 
Good luck
