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.

Mason Railroad Trail

Wonderful, well maintained trail

May, 2024 by twelch11

A lot of work has been done to this trail in the spring of 2024. Although most trails in this area took a hit due to bad weather, people have stepped up and cleaned and improved this trail considerably. Several washouts were repaired and the Mason section of the trail was graded and ruts were filled in. This is an easy trail with lots of things to see and explore. An old quarry with a great history is just off the main trail and worth exploring. The trail is well marked and easily assessable. There is ample parking at several spots along the 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.

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.

Canalside Rail Trail

Alongside the canal, an easy ride

May, 2024 by davidcareyvermont

I took my bike over the Canalside Rail Trail while my wife shopped at BJ's, and it was a perfect opportunity to check out this lovely short trail. For the 22nd April 2024, the weather was really good yet there were only few other walkers on the trail at the same time. I was able to park at the southern, McClelland Farm Road, end of the trail where there are only half a dozen spots, but there are many more parking spaces at the northern end.
The trail was in more than satisfactory condition and the signage was also nicely in place, not that it was really needed. I didn't have time to stop in at the Discovery Centre Museum but I did return to BJ's in plenty of time to pay for my wife's shopping that day. I had a lovely time so much so that I plan to take my wife on the same trail whenever I get my old tandem up and running.

Washington Secondary Bike Path

Trash and and dog shit everywhere.

April, 2024 by jtheriault1225

It's a nice path, don't get me wrong, but people are trashy as hell. First of all, if this is labelled as a bike path, don't tell walkers to walk against bikers. Also, there's trash everywhere and dog crap on the actual path. Whoever lived in that area takes this path for granted and it shows. I would be thrilled to have a path like that near me. Pick up after yourselves - JC!
