Rockingham Recreational Rail Trail (Fremont Branch)

not for hybrid bikes

September, 2022 by sem1psu_tl

Trail is great for anything but hybrid bikes, ie, walking, horseback riding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, sledding. It is dirt, sand, loose stones, hidden boulders, and tree roots as well as metal hazards and horse manure piles. Beautiful views, when you can take your eyes off of the path in front of you, and shaded.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Very nice and unique rail-to-trail project

September, 2022 by galen.wright74

Just did this trail from Wakefield to Wolfeboro (and back) on Sunday. It’s a very nice and unique rail-to-trail project. I have ridden many rail-to-trail projects over the years, and have been involved with developing and maintaining trails in the past. I have been on trails built on top of old/removed railroad right-of-ways. I have been on trails built next to old railroad right-of-ways. But… I have never been on a trail actually built on an existing railroad right-of-way. I have seen several reviews complaining about this setup, however, I don’t think people understand the significance of this from an operational and historical perspective. Yes, having the trail lay between the railroad track gauge does limit space. And, this trail does cross the tracks back and forth quite a bit, which may pose a safety risk to those that are not cautious. But, with all of that being said… having the ability to operate motorized rail equipment on this trail is exciting and it gives visitors to this trail a unique perspective on seeing how the rail line worked.

The trail itself is of sand and light crushed stone construction, and it seems to be relatively well maintained. There were a few rutty places. You will definitely need a mountain or trail bike for this trip. However, I actually ran across members of the trail club doing maintenance Spent some time talking to them, and they were very friendly and informative. There is lots to see along the route, and Wolfeboro is a neat little tourist town. I drove over from Maine to try this trail out, and it was definitely worth the trip.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Rails in place which lead to dangerous bike rail crossings.

September, 2022 by kevin376

It was hard to enjoy this trail because you have to worry about crossing rails which are still in place. The trail crosses them constantly and each crossing is dangerous on a bike. The guy in front of us had a nasty crash and we had a few close calls. When even the slightest bit of moisture gets the on the rails tires just slide. There was no rain on the day we rode but damp spots on the trail lead to wet rails.

The people who made the trail know all this and signs say you must dismount every time a crossing happens. But they happen so often that there would hardly be any point riding.

And in most cases because the trail is between the rails or wedged on one side or the other there really isn't room to pass for bicycles. Usually one bike or the other has to stop to allow the other to pass. It's just a terrible design for bicycles.

Assabet River Rail Trail

Absolutely beautiful!!

September, 2022 by bonnie_rae

Fantastic trail. I started at in Marlboro (at Lincoln St). Serene and peaceful. Great combination of shaded and sunny areas. The surface is flat and mostly downhill for the majority of the route. However…on the way back was when it turned into a workout. Gentle and moderate inclines. If you aren’t used to this, there are plenty of benches to take a rest along the way.

Eastern Trail

Saco north to Scarborough leg

September, 2022 by andrix

Plenty of parking at trailhead point off Clark St. in Saco. 8 miles one way to point where the on-rode portion begins in Scarborough. A few complex road crossings in first mile or so then only a few - and calmer - crossings remainder of ride. Scarborough Marsh area was worth the ride. Very even surface, light bike traffic and lots of shade.

Twin Cities Rail Trail

Nice!

September, 2022 by yw8km5gp4n

An excellent trail. Not really the best choice for nature-bathing, but surely the most pleasant way to ride between Fitchburg and Leominster. Smooth, wide, and flat. Lots of street crossings but they’re all pretty well done.

Clipper City Rail Trail & Harborwalk

nice job Newburyport

September, 2022 by zt48cdpc6p

This is a really nice trail. Once again Newburyport has done a great job and has made a really nice trail. Though you have to walk your bikes on the boardwalk, it’s to bumpy to ride anyways. I took a detour to plum island. It’s a nice ride with very few stops.

Eastern Trail

Only Two Wheel Bikes

September, 2022 by g244dpz8y7

So I can only speak to the first 3 miles from the trail head in Kennebunk to mile 3. I ride a tadpole trike and found the obstacles at road crossings either just wide enough with caution to fit to one 3 mile in that I could not fit my trike at all. That means no trikes or wheel chair of any type and I would be very careful if you use a kid trailer. Overall it was a bad experience that did not need to be if the trailfiljs had put any real thought into it!!!

Nashua River Rail Trail

Really Good Paved Trail w/ a Few Bumps

August, 2022 by tbrennan211

From end to end, about a 12.5 mile paved trail. A few bumps for cyclists who have an aversion to such, but are most often marked with white paint. The trail runs along the Nashua River and just south of Groton, MA has a few pretty swamps and a small lake. A very pretty ride. Not crowded early on weekdays but is very well used on weekends by other riders, walkers, runners and the occasional horse. All in all, a very good experience.
