Farmington Recreational Rail-Trail

Needs some serious work.

July, 2024 by bstnh1

Tried riding this trail with a regular (skinny tire) bike. That's close to impossible. It's pretty obvious the trail has not been and is not maintained. It's rutted, has tree roots across it , has wet, muddy areas and worst of all, it has sections of very soft sand that make biking on it nearly impossible. It crosses NH Rte.11, a major two lane 55MPH highway, so be prepared. It is definitely not handicapped accessible. There are no facilities of any kind along or adjacent to the trail. Overall, a huge disappointment.

Cotton Valley Rail-Trail

Nine riders went in. Only 4 came out without injury. Dangerous crossings over rails. Zigzag back and forth across tracks. Why not stay on just one side???? Needs maintenance to make it safer.

Salem Bike-Ped Corridor

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.

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 Rail Trail

Rode from Lebanon to Grafton, beautiful trail, especially for a gravel bike. There some single track sections, but that added to experience. Loved the fact that it crossed the river many times thus many bridges and several tunnels.

Boxford Rail Trail

The worst, go elsewhere.

June, 2024 by curt.schulz

Not even really a rail trail. You are biking under double electric lines. There is no posting at the Pond Street entrance. Also, a quarter mile in, there is a no trespassing sign right on the trail so you have to take a longer loop around on surface streets to get back under the power lines. Not scenic at all. I've done about 18 trails throughout MA and NH and this is the worst trail I have been on. Why is this even listed here?

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.

Topsfield Linear Common

Topsfield Linear a lovely ride

May, 2024 by suebl

We have been riding this trail for at least seven years. I am surprised to be the first reviewer. Topsfield Linear Common trail is one of the most consistently scenic trails I have ridden in eastern Massachusetts. At some point it merges with the Danvers Rail Trail so maybe most of the reviews are there. On Saturday, we parked in Topsfield Center as usual, across from St. Rose of Lima Church (that is the easiest way to find the parking lot via GPS) and decided to go north, which in the past was not at all finished and became quickly impassable. But to our surprise, work had been done on this part of the trail since we last checked, so we were able to ride the full two miles to the end in Boxford. You can't go any further because Rte. 95 is in front of you. In Topfield, it is still a narrow packed dirt trail, but the grass on both sides has been mowed. When you cross over to Boxford, the trail becomes small gravel. At the very end, for a short distance, it reverts to dirt track.

We returned to Topsfield and rode south. You pass the fairgrounds, then the Ipswich River, and The Wenham-Danvers swamp, which has a lovely .3 mile scenic scenic boardwalk through the swamp. We were probably on the Danvers trail by now. We went as far as the playground which purports to be in Wenham, and has a place to refill your water bottle as well as equipment for kids.

The part of the trail from here to the end of the Danvers trail is, to my mind, not so scenic, so I have stopped riding it.

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.

Head's Pond Trail

Great parking lot off rt3 in Hooksett. Packed gravel trail for the most part. Absolutely beautiful wetlands and woods. A wildlife paradise.
