Shining Sea Bikeway

windswept cruise on a blue bird day!

September, 2021 by rickewb

First and not last ride on this historic trail. Well maintained, but keep your eye out for some upward pressing roots. Not too crowded and plenty of scenic vistas. A joy.

Washington Secondary Bike Path

One of the best rail to trails on the East Coast for a road cyclists

September, 2021 by m.p.schneider.lc

The trail is relatively long, is scenic, manages to avoid too many road crossings, is easy to follow without getting confused, doesn't have a ton of cracks in the pavement, keeps crowds relatively low (I rode it on Labor Day) so you aren't stopping every 5 minutes, etc.

I really felt like I could glide along peacefully at a good clip.

The only slight issue was there are a few roots under the pavement that have broken it making mini speed bumps.

Neponset River Greenway

Great first time on the NRT!

September, 2021 by johnrogers626

We had a delightful mid-Labor Day ride, with warm sunshine and many others the closer we went from Readville to John Paul Park, and then few again as we returned to our car. The southern portion along Truman Parkway, mostly on sidewalks, was our least favorite, and I think we’d park at the Neponset Esplanade Park next time, and brave further north to the JFK Museum, and beyond?.

Old Colony Rail Trail

danger I Chatham.

September, 2021 by originaljohndipietro

Be very aware that the last mile of the trail in the town of Chatham is on city streets with very heavy car and truck traffic. This is absolutely not safe for families that are traveling with little kids on bikes. Suggest parking at the airport or another place and begin the travel westward from there.

Neponset River Greenway

love it!

September, 2021 by emilyvl91

I’m from nyc so I LOVE walking and this park is definitely one of my top favorites! It’s not only the cleanest park, it’s also one of the most interesting and fun parks I’ve been to! The playgrounds are awesome! The view is incredible, it isn’t uphill, so it’s a steady paced path and it’s simply magical! Plus my dogs love it and dogs are welcomed!

Blackstone River Greenway

Your site is woefully out-of-date

September, 2021 by grammageary

It's a great trail and it would be good to have a map of it but this site is missing quite a bit of the trail.

Head of the Meadow Trail

Smooth new asphalt

August, 2021 by cchiangroy

Flat, winding trail on brand new smooth asphalt. Not a single crack or root bump. Wish it was longer! Parked at Head of Meadow beach lot, did this as short bike before heading to the beach.

Province Lands Bike Trail

Province Lands

August, 2021 by kassiehuhtanen

Great trail with flats and rollers…if you do not ride you may have issues as the dunes can be steep. Pay attention to sand on curves and watch your speed. Be respectful of others by pulling to the outside of the path when taking in the scenery. Look back as you will see the scenic vistas from a different perspective- If your hungry head over to Cosmos to Go as they have great food and cold drinks as well as cookies!!!

Charles River Bike Path

Spectacular

August, 2021 by dalex1953

This must be one of the finest, most divers trails in the country. From waterfalls and woods near the Watertown / Waltham end to the busy urban end near the Science Museum this trail has something for everyone. The views of the downtown skyline, Cambridge, the bridges, boathouses, MIT, BU, and Harvard are nothing short of spectacular, post card images. Sometimes the Esplanade area gets crowded but it’s well worth it.

William C. O'Neill Bike Path

Absolutely beautiful but not inline skate friendly, lots of debris on the path.Would come back here for biking and walking!

August, 2021 by nicola.d.greenaway

Absolutely beautiful but not inline skate friendly, lots of debris on the path.Would come back here for biking and walking!

Washington Secondary Bike Path

Not too bad

August, 2021 by chanthas

A lot of bumps from the roots uplifting the pavement. But there are plenty of shades and only a couple of hills on the Coventry side. Mostly flat throughout the rest.

Cape Cod Canal Bikeway

Awesome trail!

July, 2021 by tsyrell

Can’t ask for a better trail to ride. I love the coastal views!
