Assabet River Rail Trail

Cool quick ride

If you want a quick ride, this is your trail. Enjoy!

Phoenix Bike Trail

Short & Sweet

May, 2022 by oxlilemmiexo

Short ride but the path is well maintained and good scenery along the way. Some of the trail is closed right now and a downside is there weren't any place to stop along the way for coffee or lunch or good view at the end points.

Windsor Locks Canal State Park Trail

A beautiful trail in need of resurfacing

May, 2022 by eajack

My wife and I rode our recumbent trikes on the entirety of this trail on a Saturday evening. For the most part, we encountered only walkers. And based on the surface condition of the trail, I understand why. The pavement has deteriorated and is full of root-bumps and small dips. It was a very rough ride.

I would recommend this trail for walkers, joggers, or cyclists if you've got a bike/trike with a suspension. The bulk of the trail is on the old towpath between the river and the canal, so other than the north and south ends, you are separated by water from the rest of the world. This makes for a quiet, relaxing, and scenic trek. The northern terminus near the parking lot, which also forms a "T" with the CT 190 bridge, and the southern terminus by the renovated mill building are new and in great shape. All we need now is for Connecticut to resurface the original portion... even stone dust would be better than the broken pavement.

Blackstone River Greenway

Woonsocket to Cumberland

May, 2022 by andrix

Beautiful day on this section of the Blackstone River Greenway. Trail is paved entire way and in very good shape with only a handful of road crossings. There were relatively few walkers/riders (Thursday), some benches along the way, a number of signs with historical write-up and nice views of some waterfalls. Overall an excellent 20 RT ride. Gave it a 4 only because of a few long "average views" stretches. The 195 Davidson Ave, Woonsocket, RI (northern point) address for GPS worked great.

Hartford Riverwalk

Lovely!

May, 2022 by afalls4

I went here on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. What a lovely place! This is a paved trail that follows the river and has a nice playground and picnic area at one end. There are various sculptures related to Abraham Lincoln along the way. It was very relaxing to stroll along the water. The views of the bridges and the Hartford skyline are stunning. Will definitely return!

Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway

delightful space amidst the concrete

April, 2022 by 56x8j2sqr9

One of the best ways to see Boston in a green space amidst all the concrete. There are several traffic light/cross walks that interrupt the complete journey but are very easily accessible by foot, bike, wheelchair and stroller. Stop to enjoy some of the signage to see what local/indigenous flowers have been planted.

Fresh Pond Bikeway

1 hour loop

April, 2022 by 56x8j2sqr9

This path extends around the entire reservoir bridging Cambridge & Belmont. It's a lovely 1hour walk, with or without dogs. Sometimes a bit crowded, has a muddy/mulched section which can make ADA/stroller use a challenge, but otherwise lovely. Enjoy!

Air Line State Park Trail

South from Willimantic 5*; north from Windham Rt 6 (went 2 miles) to Putnam 3*

April, 2022 by andrix

On e Bikes; trail to north from Windham generally passable but long wet areas (eventually turned around) and trail a bit rougher than going south from Willimantic. The south trail is in much better shape and had inviting scenery with streams, farms and wetlands/lakes + virtually no wet areas on trail. Went to RT 87 (about 8 miles) from Willimantic. Plan to do this again and go further.

Upper Charles Trail

4m Trail?

Air Line State Park Trail

Pomfret section of trail

April, 2022 by aldcon_tl

Parked at lot on Railroad St off of 44. New parking lot and pavilion with new overpass for trail over main road. Took trail NE to Town Farm Rd. and then streets into Putnam. Trail in this section gets average rating of 2+. Trail base is coarse rock (1.5" +) with washed out ruts. Somewhat bumpy ride. Only good for bikes with wider tires. In Putnam went south on Putnam River Trail (excellent paved trail) south to bridge over Quinebaug River. Crossed river climbed up steep hill to get to old rail trail and took this back to starting point.
Next went SW from rail station on trail to Covell Road. This section of trail in very good shape. Hard packed gravel base. I'd rate this a 4. Easy going for most bikes.

Air Line State Park Trail

It could be better

March, 2022 by revgil

I live close to the Pomfret Station so I decided to give the Airline Trail North another chance. I had ridden from the new bridge north toward Putnam last fall and found that much of it to be unride-able. Today I headed south, and after a short time, I realized it was just too rough for my seventy year old body. Horse’s hooves and dirt bikes had dug it up.
It’s really a shame that the powers that be don’t pony up and pave it. I think that it could be one of the best trails in the country.
