Recent Trail Reviews

Twin Cities Rail Trail

It’s ok.

July, 2024 by closey2112

First off. . . Glad that they finally did something with that stretch of track. I use to ride my mountain bike along them. The trail itself is very nice, clean and wide. To echo, what others have stated, why too many stops and stoplights. Definitely a great walking path. Also, it just ends. . . You get to the end at Fourth St - Fitchburg and the signage tells you to take a left, then a right, onto Middle St. then a right onto First St and it just ends?! I hope the complete more.

Charter Oak Greenway

parts are great

July, 2024 by rn28wc7n8y

Manchester towards Hartford is great for a few miles. Then it gets a little dicey and unpleasant. You’re forced onto sidewalks through busy neighborhoods and alongside a highway with only a jersey barrier between you and reckless drivers.

Ware River Rail-Trail

June 2024 Gravel Bike

This trail had sand, deep in areas made it not fun for gravel biking.

Blackstone River Greenway

Not a great ride

June, 2024 by pamiller919

Started from India point park and it isn’t marked where to. We lost the “route” many times because of no signage. Very bumpy, wouldn’t call it a scenic ride.

Ware River Rail-Trail

Gates? Trucks on the Trail?

June, 2024 by res3737

I only rode the southern 3 miles of this trail between Route 122 and Route 62. The surface is not bad, no muddy spots, although there was a large pine tree down across the trail that was nearly impassable. My only criticism of this section was that there were no gates at Grange Road or Lackey Lane and I believe only on the southerly side of Covered Bridge Road which meant that I looked over my shoulder at one point to find a Toyota Tacoma bearing down on me. Why are there trucks driving on the rail trail?

East Bay Bike Path (RI)

Not over-hyped

June, 2024 by admin109

For the person who said there are no facilities on the trail, for most of the riding weather spring, and summer, Colt State Park has bathrooms in Bristol and further north towards Providence, just north of Barrington there’s a boat launch that has bathrooms. I guess you’re looking for 100% scenery when you ride a trail. Most of this trail is gorgeous and if you ride into Colt State Park you can get even better views along the trail in there and add 4-5 miles if you do it right.

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!!!

William C. O'Neill Bike Path

Lovely well managed trail

June, 2024 by andrix

Great ride on a beautiful Saturday mid-June. However, all parking was taken at the Amtrak station area and even at the "Additional Parking" lot. On the other hand there was plenty of parking around the URI campus and the URI bike trail (2 Miles) connects with the O'Neill. The O'Neill trail is mostly shaded, in excellent shape and surprisingly not that crowded. There's numerous road crossings but cars were typically very accommodating to stop. At trails end we went another mile into Narragansett to check out the town and beach scene. All in all a very enjoyable afternoon.

URI Bike Path

University bike trail makes for a nice ride

June, 2024 by andrix

The trail has an excellent surface and made for an easy trip to the University for my wife and I. At the trail end we toured off trail thru the main campus before returning to the William C. O'Neill trail. Total distance of 6 miles. We rated it 4* because of the lack of interesting scenery (other than URI) and being fairly short.

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!

Mattapoisett Rail Trail

Most scenic trail in MA

May, 2024 by bow_laker

The Mattapoisett Rail Trail goes along the ocean and over marshland. It is absolutely beautiful. Although short, it seamlessly merges into the Fairhaven Rail Trail almost out to Fort Phoenix. Highly recommended.
