Southern New England Trunkline Trail

Not worth doing in its entirety

May, 2020 by madisonegaudet

I started the trail with the hopes of finishing the entire thing by walking. The current construction on the Franklin portion of the trail made that very difficult to do. Furthermore, it is labeled decently enough through Franklin, portions of Bellingham and Blackstone, and then again once you reach Douglas State Forest. However, there are many miles that are unclear and involve walking through towns and near the highway. Trail maps also occasionally led us in the wrong direction. This trail was extremely difficult due primarily to the vague instruction. Some sections were very nice, but I don’t think it’s worth doing it in it’s entirety.

East Bay Bike Path

Relaxing Day

May, 2020 by nancysanterre

Really like this trail. It’s well maintained, views are great. Love ending the ride with a picnic lunch at Colt State Park overlooking the ocean.

Neponset River Greenway

Not for cyclists

May, 2020 by beatriz8153

This trail is good for walking and kid’s bike only. Not for cycling.

Whitney Spur Rail Trail

Large Network of Trails ¿¿

May, 2020 by matthewgray.design

Pleasantly surprised by this vast network of well-kept trails as well as rural roads. Trailhead is readily accessible from MBTA parking lot. Easy and serene ride down to Aaron River Reservoir. Passed several offshoot paths. Most seemed to offer a compact and comfortable riding surface. I had no trouble nor did I feel limited on my old school road bike.

Cape Cod Canal Bikeway

Nice scenic path

May, 2020 by peterwor

Always a pleasant ride. Flat, paved, scenic a really pleasant ride. Plenty of places to stop and take in the sights.

Blackstone River Greenway

how the hell is this considered a biking trail?!?

May, 2020 by atherien

Extremely narrow, muddy, full of roots and ups and downs. This would be hard to navigate with hiking boots, let alone a bike... ridiculous.

Norwell Pathway

Pretty trail

April, 2020 by scm52375

It was an easy trail for a family consisting of all ages. Well-maintained and clean

Norwell Pathway

peaceful trail

April, 2020 by scm52375

Beautiful clean walk or bike ride.

North Bank Bridge

Fabulous bridge to downtown Boston

April, 2020 by rickcontix

Using this terrific bridge, you can ride from the Cambridge (including the Charles River path) right into downtown Boston. It's a quick ride from the end of the bridge (plus a brief walk over the Charles River canal locks) into the North End, which has a nice path separated from traffic, then onto the Harborwalk and other city paths.

Blackstone River Greenway

Enjoyable

April, 2020 by nancysanterre

I love this trail. Few bumpy spots due to tree roots but overall a great trail with great scenery.

Norwell Pathway

April, 2020 by capetripp
