Spicket River Greenway

urban trail, easy to follow

April, 2024 by reg13

Trail connects to the Methuen Rail Trail via a confusing ramp (at the north end of the park). It’s narrow and turns a lot so you won’t go fast, but it’s paved and was easy to follow. MBTA commuter rail near the east end. I liked it because you see a bit of the city as get through safely.

Assabet River Rail Trail

good trail except for the gap and the muddy section

April, 2024 by reg13

The part between Sudbury Rd and the wildlife refuge entrance at White Pond Rd is dirt and can be impassable mud. The rest of the gap is pretty sketchy, two-lane road with no shoulder. The wildlife refuge is great too.

Mystic River Greenway

next to the highway

April, 2024 by reg13

Useful as a connector and seems to be popular for recreation but you’re next to a highway the whole time

Accordion

Watertown Community Bike Path

extension of the Watertown Cambridge Greenway

April, 2024 by reg13

It extended the path a little bit to the west. This is a two-way separated lane next to Arsenal St, that is fine until it ends just when it’s needed most, leaving you to fend for yourself in a super dangerous intersection.

Watertown Linear Park Trail

pointless trail

April, 2024 by reg13

A mostly pointless path that doesn’t connect to anything because the rest of the rail route is gone. The city could make a connection through the parking lots at the east end so you can get to the Watertown Cambridge Greenway, which starts about 1/4 mile east of the harrowing intersection at Watertown Square, and the river paths.

Watertown-Cambridge Greenway

Important connector and not too crowded

April, 2024 by reg13

Now extends from Fresh Pond in Cambridge/Alewife to near Watertown Sq, and connects to the Charles river paths (at a few points) and many shopping needs. Pavement is good except a spot near School St.

Somerville Community Path

city trail

April, 2024 by reg13

Trail is well used for walking so you have to ride slowly but it’s a good urban experience. Plenty of places to stop, good pavement, easy transit access. The section east of Lowell St has fewer road crossings and is less crowded. Trail is plowed in winter.

Eastern Trail

Kennebunk to Biddeford

April, 2024 by hammer757

Nice section starting from the Kennebunk elementary school parking lot. The trail switches to road riding in Biddeford turn left when the trail ends and you’ll see a Dunkin Donuts. Can you say coffee and pee

Garrison Trail

DOGS NEED TO BE ON A LEASH

April, 2024 by inluvwsl

The trail itself is excellent. A great place for a leisurely walk, bike or skate between Newburyport and Amesbury with options to continue/connect to the rail trail for a longer trek. But while the trail is awesome, I don’t understand why people feel entitled to let their dogs roam off leash along the trail? This makes it not only uncomfortable for those walking, but dangerous for those biking or skating that don’t want to be chased by a dog, friendly or not, that can be the cause of an accident. It’s really not the dogs fault… it’s the owners ignorance and disrespect for anyone that shouldn’t have to alter what they are doing in order to be deal with your dog. If you want to walk your dog off leash, there are numerous other places nearby that can accommodate you.

Bruce Freeman Rail Trail

Great for training half and full marathon

April, 2024 by trishle9

There’s tons of long stretches of trail that doesn’t require you to wait for pedestrians signals. And not many major intersections stops. Trail is mostly flat with a few rolling inclines and declines.

Boxford Rail Trail

Nice extension to the Topsfield/ Danvers trail

April, 2024 by antiquecaddy

This is a nice trail. It can be a bit hard to ride with road tires, much easier with a hybrid. You often run in to walkers, the people who use this trail are always friendly. It is a Part of the East Coast Greenway and a nice extension to the Topsfield / Danvers trail. I have run into "through riders" doing some part of the East Coast Greenway.

Sugar River Trail

amazing Trail

April, 2024 by nariipr

We had a great time on this trail, which was easy to navigate. It was our first outing this season since we acquired an ATV for my wife and we enjoyed spending time together while exploring nature. We encountered people walking their dogs and bikers along the way. The trail was well-maintained and clean. We made sure to slow down and say hello to everyone we met. We will definitely be back on this trail again!
