Recent Trail Reviews

Charles River Bike Path

Nice Urban Trail

September, 2021 by normanbowers

Upstream portion of trail has gravel sections and asphalt sections that are not well maintained. As trail proceeds downstream toward Boston the trail becomes wider and more refined. Many interesting sights along the way. Ride carefully, many local riders have a tendency to whiz past without warning and squeeze between pedestrians and opposing bikers.

Cochituate Rail Trail

CRT update

September, 2021 by steveneuman

The Cochituate Rail Trail is complete and extends from Saxonville in Framingham going south passing Cochituate lake to Natick, a distance of four miles. Parking is available at or near Home Depot on Route 30. The southern end in Natick is just north of the Railroad station at Natick Center. Benches and bicycle racks as well as refuse containers are available along the trail.

Shining Sea Bikeway

windswept cruise on a blue bird day!

September, 2021 by rickewb

First and not last ride on this historic trail. Well maintained, but keep your eye out for some upward pressing roots. Not too crowded and plenty of scenic vistas. A joy.

Cochituate Rail Trail

CRT review 2

September, 2021 by steveneuman

Now the Cochituate Rail Trail has more than doubled in length stretching from Saxonville to Natick ad going past Lake Cochituate alongside North Main St (Rte 27). Railroad Whistle monuments along the way and many benches and bicycle rings for a brief respite.

Washington Secondary Bike Path

One of the best rail to trails on the East Coast for a road cyclists

September, 2021 by m.p.schneider.lc

The trail is relatively long, is scenic, manages to avoid too many road crossings, is easy to follow without getting confused, doesn't have a ton of cracks in the pavement, keeps crowds relatively low (I rode it on Labor Day) so you aren't stopping every 5 minutes, etc.

I really felt like I could glide along peacefully at a good clip.

The only slight issue was there are a few roots under the pavement that have broken it making mini speed bumps.

Bruce Freeman Rail Trail

great ride.

September, 2021 by zt48cdpc6p

This might be one of my new favorites. Clean paths, Nice crossings, Plenty of places to rest. There is only one bumpy area on the hole trail. Small complaint: the parking directions need to be updated. The office building is called Cross Point and the highway exits have changed. Otherwise , this is a nice way to spend an afternoon .

Martin H. Burns Wildlife Management Area Trail

Not Ready for Road Biking

September, 2021 by zemlinsky

I managed to get thru the I-95 to Newburyport section with great difficulty on a road bike, but would never do that again. About seven major puddles/ponds about 10-20 ft long. Most were 8-10inches but one was 2ft deep in the middle and I had to wade thru the water, not way to go around. Most others you can walk around at the edge with the bike steadying you, rolling thru the water. Late afternoon in August, the wife and I were attacked by hundreds of mosquitos, pretty miserable. As others have said, gravel/sand is bad in some spots where tires sink and you must walk. About 75% you can ride on a road bike at jogging speed. Would not recommend except for very dry weather or hardy mountain biker. I'll wait until the bridges are built.

Neponset River Greenway

Great first time on the NRT!

September, 2021 by johnrogers626

We had a delightful mid-Labor Day ride, with warm sunshine and many others the closer we went from Readville to John Paul Park, and then few again as we returned to our car. The southern portion along Truman Parkway, mostly on sidewalks, was our least favorite, and I think we’d park at the Neponset Esplanade Park next time, and brave further north to the JFK Museum, and beyond?.

Old Colony Rail Trail

danger I Chatham.

September, 2021 by originaljohndipietro

Be very aware that the last mile of the trail in the town of Chatham is on city streets with very heavy car and truck traffic. This is absolutely not safe for families that are traveling with little kids on bikes. Suggest parking at the airport or another place and begin the travel westward from there.

Border to Boston Trail

nice ride

September, 2021 by zt48cdpc6p

I started from my house in S Peabody and caught the Peabody side from Northshore mall. Took the trail to the end in Ipswich. About 13.5 miles each way. Thought quite a few crossings it’s still a nice ride. All trails are taken care of until you get deep into Ipswich where it is more a bridle path bur rideable. The trail thins out quite a bit with gullets on Both sides, kinda scary looking? Still, nice ride and looking forward to doing it again this fall when the trees are turning. Have fun

Neponset River Greenway

love it!

September, 2021 by emilyvl91

I’m from nyc so I LOVE walking and this park is definitely one of my top favorites! It’s not only the cleanest park, it’s also one of the most interesting and fun parks I’ve been to! The playgrounds are awesome! The view is incredible, it isn’t uphill, so it’s a steady paced path and it’s simply magical! Plus my dogs love it and dogs are welcomed!

Blackstone River Greenway

Your site is woefully out-of-date

September, 2021 by grammageary

It's a great trail and it would be good to have a map of it but this site is missing quite a bit of the trail.
