Begins in Chelmsford at the Lowell/Chelmsford line, near Cross Point, passes through Chelmsford Center, and ends at Rt. 225 in Westford. This part of the trail covers a stretch of 6.8 miles.
Parking and Trail Access
Park in a designated area, as many intersecting streets do not allow for on street parking. Designated parking areas in Chelmsford are located at the Old Town Hall, the Municipal Lot, Pond Street and Byam School, after school hours.
My favorite local trail
I love the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail. I like to start at the trailhead in Lowell and go through the fun tunnel under Route 3. You're in the woods soon after, although the services of Chelmsford are in easy reach from the cross streets. Pick up some sandwiches ...
Really nice trail! Some nice views of a river. Some nature trails off it too. A lake about halfway where I had lunch. Most of it is in the woods. Great trail
