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.

Salem-Windham Rail Trail

July, 2024 by kroselle25

Just did this trail today from Range Road in Windham to Derry. This is a great trail and was surprisingly not that busy for July 3rd. One tiny observation, we attempted to start at the Willow St. parking area in Salem across from Dodge Grain. Things have changed there since the Rail Trail map was done, there is no parking anywhere there now. Some company has signs saying non-company business parkers will be towed. Thus we went north. However, it looks like there is an empty lot at the Main St. - Central St. intersection across from the Depot Museum in Salem. It looks to be safe to park there and the rail trail is a few steps away.

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.

North Central Pathway

Northern Part is the best

June, 2024 by res3737

Overall this is a great trail and one of my favorites, but I'll give you the detailed breakdown from North to South. Starting near the YMCA in Winchendon it is a beautiful paved trail with great scenery and lots of good parking here and a little further down near Glenallen Street. Just after you cross the large bridge at the beginning, there is an inconspicuous and not very inviting junction with the unpaved Ware River Rail Trail on the right that I have not ridden. I rode all the way down to North Ashburnham Road where I turned right, took a right on Route 12 for a short bit, then turned left on Old Gardner Road to get to the next section of paved trail and skipped the unpaved portion between Route 12 and Old Gardner Road. This next section is very nice as well, although I'm not a fan of the underpass at Commercial Drive because it collects water at the bottom even during the summer. I always ride the narrow dirt track over the top to avoid the water in the tunnel. There is at least one maintenance station between here and Route 140 and a few benches to stop and rest on. Once you cross Route 140, I'm not a big fan. There are no muddy spots, but that's because a lot of crushed stone has been placed in sections on the trail which makes for a very rough ride. I'm hoping this crushed stone is a prelude to placing some compacted crushed gravel for a better riding surface. We shall see. I stopped at Park Street and then rode down into Gardner from there. It is all very nice and it would be 5 stars if the southern section had a better surface.

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?

Concord-Lake Sunapee Rail Trail

so much to do

June, 2024 by carmen347

I have been waiting to try this route for several years. Always hearing that it wasn’t close to being finished. I was very disappointed to see firsthand that virtually nothing has been done for those years. The first mile from Concord is covered with packed cinder, but beyond that the trail is still raw and rough with exposed rocks and roots. Not sure why this project has stalled but I will not be riding it or supporting it until domething more is done to show progress. tiding it ir supporting it until I see something

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!!!

Northern Strand Community Trail

getting better and better

June, 2024 by mcvk57tjjp

This trail is very near our home. We’ve watched it evolve since we used to walk along the railroad tracks. It has taken a long time to develop, but we love it and appreciate the improvements that keep coming. We walk and bike there often. Looking forward to when we can bike all the way to Somerville on one end and Nahant on the other tx Bike To the Sea!!!

Northern Strand Community Trail

Parts are really pleasant

June, 2024 by r2tguy

Just did this trail today with my wife and 2 friends. We're all in our 70s. We had fun but were taken by surprise when we hit the end... the trail just ends and it's necessary to ride back a hundred yards to a road to get off the trail.

We plodded along the Lynnway to the traffic circle at Nahant Road then rode south along Nahant Beach to the Tides restaurant for beer, fried clams, and mussels. On the way back after lunch we rode on the hard-packed beach back to the traffic circle then worked our way back to the Northern Strand Community Trail back to where we parked at Rivergreen Park in Everett. We had too much sun and the rush hour was approaching so we skipped the ride over to the Encore Boston Harbor Casino.

The marshes were an unexpected surprise in this densely-populated area. We visited America's largest model train store. And the aroma of coffee and baked bread was so welcome.

Watch out for the electric scooters. The people riding them go too fast (and they don't wear helmets).

The reason I gave four stars and not five is the many road crossings and traffic lights. We found it helps to press the button to cross.
