Mass Central Rail Trail

MCTR - West Boylston to Rutland

June, 2024 by closey2112

Ok, I recently purchased a ‘24 Trek Checkpoint ALR 5 axs gravel bike. This section of trail is absolutely amazing. Roughly 26.3 miles round trip from West Boylston to Rutland. Starting in West Boylston, Ma you head west. The trail is hard packed dirt. Smoother than most roads in Mass! ¿ No, seriously! Just be careful, this section up to the I-190 bridges, there’s usually a lot of traffic. Especially people with doggos. Some more cognizant than others. But once you cross under the bridges, no dogs are allowed and the traffic thins out. The best section is at the parking lot on Mill St - Holden. It’s packed gravel and as wide a road. It meanders up to the mail Trail and is packed gravel all the way until you hit construction on the trail. So much fun!!!

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Nice weather makes the ride nice

June, 2024 by vc2019

Started in Adams and rode to the end and back. Nice weather on this wide paved and shaded trail. It is in great condition. There are a number of road crossings but most are small streets. The gates are all the same, an opening on each side and we saw atleast two recumbent trikes make it through without problems. Photo to show the gates today.

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

A must ride

June, 2024 by ahanks

Visiting in lower NY area and had this on my bucket list. It was a well paved and maintained trail. Parked at railroad at in Cheshire and rode to the parking area in Pittsfield and then back and a few miles into the Adams area. All in 18 miles. Plenty of options for parking, bathroom Facilities in a few areas and many benches and picnic tables placed to stop and take a break or enjoy the views of the Lindai a or chechsire reservoir. It was well worth the trip!

Columbia Greenway Rail Trail

Enjoyed this trail!

June, 2024 by kdcspamspam

Not too busy, was a little buggy but was nice and pretty smooth. We rollerbladed on it with no issues. Also very pretty scenery!

Rocky Hill Trail

Completely paved; easy

June, 2024 by pianoemily

This was a very short trail which was completely paved. It was nice and shaded due to the trees. It would be an easy walk with grandparents (there are benches) or young children. I recommend setting your gps to find something like 134 Sandy Hill Road in Florence. From there, you can easily find the trail beginning. To get my 10,000 steps I had to go back and forth on the trail a lot. But I still appreciated it fully paved! Seems like more of a neighborhood morning walk trail.

Hop River State Park Trail

Terrific Trail

May, 2024 by 9q8skpdwwc

Just finished the whole trail, plus the Charter Oak Trail, from Columbia to Manchester, and back. 44 miles at 12.5 mph. A very gentle steady climb of about 500 feet to Bolton Notch, from the east. Also about 500 feet up the South end of Manchester. With the exception of a short stretch leaving Columbia, the trail is very rideable, in fine shape. Highly recommended!

CTfastrak Multi-Use Trail

Trail starts downtown New Britian, easy to find. Trail was clean, well marked except when you hit the main road for a little distance. Not a lot of people on 5/25/24. There's not a lot to look at but a nice 4.4 Mile trail.

Blackstone River Greenway

Woonsocket to Valley Falls area

May, 2024 by andrix

A very nice paved 10 mile (one way) trip with plenty of birds & turtles. Park at Rivers Edge Parking to get started. Along the way the posted history is interesting, there are 3 large dams to check out and on this beautiful sunny day lots of wildlife. Once you get to Valley Falls area the trail ends and on-street begins. We continued on for maybe 2 miles but the signs were not consistent and the traffic was troublesome enough we turned back. Our rating only applies to the paved 10 mile section.

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

Harlem River Trail

May, 2024 by johnecarl

This is a great trail. Great scenery and well paved. The northern part is partially under repair and new pavement so you have may to go to a starting point a little further south

Farmington Canal Heritage Trail

Farmington/Heritage

May, 2024 by blujeepin76

Over run with cyclists. Many very inconsiderate. They don’t ring their bell until right behind you. Should be a biking speed limit. Many older people can’t move out of the way when there are pairs of cyclists that stay side by side. Extremely inconsiderate. Not all but too many are.
