Canalside Rail Trail

Bonus! Bonus!

November, 2022 by egauger

Nice trail, what it lacks in length it makes up for in bonuses. 1. Brick and Feather Brewery along the path with outdoor seating. 2. Discovery Center Museum near trailhead in Turner’s Falls, free, cool animal displays and lots of interesting information in this little gem.

Fort Hill Recreational Rail Trail

I agree with previous reviews

After riding the Ashuelot Rail Trail in the summer and seeing this from the parking lot on Rt 63, I came back on an unusually warm November weekend to give it a try. I fully concur - this could be a gem of a trail if a bit more work could put in, but still a nice enough ride. I was on my hybrid, and am beginning to wish for a Fat Tire or maybe at least a shock absorbing front fork for these jouncy pot-holey trails. Pity that the trestle is falling to ruin, and in the slight rain I was caught in, I didn't chance it with slippery sneakers. Frankly, it's a tragedy waiting to happen, and with as many rotted rails as there are, I was surprised to see 3 bikers walking gingerly across. Kudos to the snowmobile clubs who watch over this trail, as you could see where chainsaw work had been done to keep it open.

Nashua River Rail Trail

Caution needed with leaves on the ground - hard to see the shoulder/gully on the side.

November, 2022 by ccoakle

My friend and I, both experienced riders, had a nice time on this trails today until we didn't With leaves on the ground, the shoulders on both sides of the trail are obscured. The paved trail is likely 3-4 inches higher than the shoulder. A few times heading north, we rode behind each other and to the right to create space of people coming towards us. We were several yards shy of parking lot at Gilson St when my friend moved right to make space. Obscured by piled up leaves, she could not appreciate where the the pavement ended and the shoulder dropped off. She corrected back onto the path, but not before her tires slipped on the leaves, and she suddenly lost control of the bike. She fell to the ground. I was behind her. Given the way she fell across the path, I couldn't avoid her, Two of us were now on the ground, bikes, too. I am grateful to the folks who stopped to help and show concern for our well-being. I am so very grateful to the gentleman, Tom, who took me back to my car in Ayer so I could come back and pick up my friend and our bikes, delaying his own cycling.. Thanks to the man who helped my put my friend's bike in my car. My friend is undergoing a medical evaluation to determine the extent of her injuries to her back, flank, and hip. Thankfully she was wearing a helmet when she struck the back of her head on the pavement.

Common Pathway

Mostly Bike

Too urban to be considered a hike or bike; winds along community roads along river. Not a hike.

Narrow-Gauge Rail-Trail

quiet trails with a few road crossings

October, 2022 by jamesss36

Overall not heavy usage on a Saturday afternoon in September. Parking is easy. Southern sections have a few road crossings at the end. The northern section is not as well maintained.

Cheshire Rail Trail (Cheshire Branch Rail Trail)

Cheshire Rail Trail (South Portion)

October, 2022 by gail glines

I rode from near the Massachusetts state line and Rt. 12 north to Keene, NH on 10/01/2022 using a cyclocross bike with mid-width knobby trail-riding tires. The conditions were very good in general but, in the portion where it reduces to a single track in width you often needed to dodge rocks sticking up in the path. The portion of this trail with several deep cuts through the rock hills are quite a memorable sight to see. Take care crossing the stone arch bridge because there are no guardrails. Overall this was an enjoyable trail to ride.

Concord River Greenway

Good trail but incomplete

They really need to finish this trail. Walking/riding the streets are not ideal

Great trail with smooth paved paths and picturesque scenery. path is a bit narrow for side by riding so be careful.

Cochituate Rail Trail

Best trail for a quick ride!

September, 2022 by bonnie_rae

I highly recommend this trail for beginner bike riders. It’s approximately 8 miles from Natick (Washington Ave) to Framingham. The terrain is mostly flat with very few gentle inclines. There is one hill but can be avoided by going across route 30…I do not recommend this! The trail is well maintained. Nice foliage and of course the Cochituate River. You will meet friendly adults, kids and dogs along the way. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Th
