Martha's Vineyard Bike Trails

Less then ideal biking conditions.....

September, 2023 by karenannhoffmann

Although Martha's Vineyard is beautiful--I would highly suggest biking only from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown. All the bike trails are literally right along the highway, with cars, trucks, and tour buses zooming by at ridiculous speeds. We were surprised because there was so much advertising about biking on the island that we thought for sure it would be a fantastic experience. Leaving Edgartown we road the so-called trail along the Edgerton West Tilsbury highway it was seriously not something I would never do again --as an experienced biker and love most trails this was just too boring unless you like riding 3 feet from the highway. We ended up cutting the ride short and going north back to Vineyard Haven. We did get in 21 miles, but I would skip biking on Martha's Vineyard and head back to the Cape to check out the Cape Cod Rail Trail, which is beautiful, scenic and a gem to ride on.

Northern Strand Community Trail

Talk about a fun (and visually stimulating) ride!

September, 2023 by tommikeleonard

This is a very fun and very well maintained trail. It crosses throught the heart of several cities/towns, so there is a lot to see. The trail is pretty flat for the whole duration, so it is an easy ride or walk.

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

Beautiful Trail

September, 2023 by robynkeys

We biked the trail today from Franklin and although it was a beautiful ride through the forest, our trip ended at the 4 mile mark because the path turned into a single lane rocky/sandy pathway. We traveled it briefly but it was not doable. It’s frustrating after reading from several apps and websites that it did not mention this. They all state it’s a 22 mile ride. Still had fun. Love getting out on our bikes!

Charles River Bike Path

Charles River Bike Path - Loved it!

August, 2023 by jcenh

We began our bike ride at the Embassy Public Parking Lot in Waltham. Because it was a Sunday morning, there were plenty of spaces available and the parking was free. We pretty much followed the trail on TrailLink web page and proceeded east along the south side of the Charles River. We did use Google Maps on our phone to track where we were and to ensure we were on the bike path vs. a sidewalk or other road / trail. We stopped in at the Bier Garden on the Esplanade to hydrate (lots of fun 😊) We then continued down to the Science Center. We returned back by way of the north side of the river through Cambridge until Bridge Street bridge. From that point we crossed back and continued on the trail we started on.

It was a beautiful, sunny and warm day. The trail was busy with walkers and other bicyclists. We didn’t encounter any problems or issues with people moving over when we signaled by ringing our bike bells. The other bicyclists along the way were also very courteous and followed the standard riding rules. The entire area along the Charles was bustling with people, families and pets out to enjoy a pleasant summer day. We thoroughly enjoyed the biking experience and plan to do again next year.

New Bedford Harborwalk

Panoramic View of the Harbor

August, 2023 by lauriegeejay

Wonderful & accessible trail. We biked over from Popes Island and rode the length of the trail. Seems like there’s ample parking at both ends and ramps make it easily accessible. Great view of the commercial fishing boats entering the inner harbor as well as the MV Wind Project staging at the west side.

Charles River Bike Path

scenic but dangerous

August, 2023 by skybar01

The Charles River Trail is NOT a bike path. While visually pretty, the trail is clearly a walking trail, a running trail and a trail for dog-walking. The trail is very poorly marked, has difficult-to-find parking and is narrow. We found the people using the trail, for the most part, had no trail etiquette; they would walk several abreast and not move when we announced ourselves riding VERY SLOWLY and approaching. In the Waltham section the trail is difficult to navigate ,resulting from lack of directional signs. It is also muddy and had at least one felled tree across the path, at head height. The trail was not nearly wide enough to I strongly suggest avoiding the area simply for parking issues alone. Instead, try the Bruce Freeman trail, the Northern Strand trail or the Minutemantrail. Hope this helps. accommodate both walkers and riders.

Bruce Freeman Rail Trail

Great trail...lots of stopping places

August, 2023 by phbrowne

Smooth. Mostly shady. Lots of crossings to pay attention to but small price to pay.

Phoenix Bike Trail

Flat and well paved, easy access to small parks and benches. Sharing the trail with dog walkers is a part of fun.There is a breakfast place and an ice cream shop by the city parking lot at the west end!

Mattapoisett Rail Trail

Blackstone River Greenway

Bees on trail

August, 2023 by isanythingavail

I love this bike path but today was a nightmare. The area of the bike path shortly after Martin Street (you go under Martin Street) has disturbed bees. As I was riding, one smacked into me under my left eye. Stung like crazy. Kept going and on the way back, in the same area, another one smacked into me under my right eye and stung me. RI Parks and Recreation have been doing a lot of work on the trail lately including mowing the sides of the trail so they may have disturbed them.

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

this is a bike trail? I think not.

July, 2023 by fuller5rgr8

This is more of a rough hiking trail with so many dips and ruts. Maybe a very good off-road bike can handle it but leave your road bike home. Someday it will be a good bike trail but not there tet
