Upper Charles Trail

wow, fantastic trail section

October, 2021 by sensi3d

Since our last visit here the bridge north of Holliston has been paved and beautiful railings with info signage. A 12 foot wide hard packed stone trail with breathtaking views. The town deserves two thumbs up! The trail head at Holliston has been really spruced up with a coffee shop/bakery across the street and a railroad depot dinner with paved parking.Small parking area at Whitney street. The entire trail all the way is a gem.

Grand Trunk Trail

I drove to find this trail two times and could not find where it begins or where to park. I'm glad for those who love it, but in using both the map and GPS, I can not find it??

Vernon Rails-to-Trails (Hop River State Park Rockville Spur)

Although this trail is not that long, it make a nice addition to riding the Vernon trail. It's a nice quiet ride and a must to experience.

Ashuelot Recreational Rail Trail

nice ride

October, 2021 by drkateklemer

right about mile 9 from Keene it was too muddy, and trail was not packed gravel anymore so we turned around. most of the trail follows powerlines so not super pretty from Keene. Next time going to try the other end to start neat Winchester…

Fort Hill Recreational Rail Trail

beautiful ride, loved the part where it has water on both sides

October, 2021 by drkateklemer

loved this trail, did fine on my trek verve with no suspension in front fork. definitely a repeat experience will happen. flat, easy, and amazing views of Connecticut river.

Nashua River Rail Trail

Went in fall, came from central mass. Not a huge fan of this trail on my trail bike, maybe on a mountain bike. badly maintained and narrow, lots of tree roots. But parking was super easy since its near a business park.

Cheshire Rail Trail (Cheshire Branch Rail Trail)

Not for hybrids

October, 2021 by dobs02

Went from Keene to Troy Depot, passable, but very rocky, muddy and barely passable with a hybrid bike. Finding the trail out of Keene wasn't obvious - finding and following the blue diamonds on the trees helped. Crossing rte 101 is pretty dangerous. Toward Troy, there's a lot of what appears to be snowmobile trail maintenance going on making the trail difficult for biking, again dislodged rocks and lots of mud. Left Troy going to Fitzwilliam and the trail became unpassable with my wife's hybrid and difficult on my mountain e-bike. Big time wash-out on the trail that goes on forever. I recommend staying away from it at least this time of the year unless you like this kind of mountain biking...

Cochituate Rail Trail

work in progress

October, 2021 by hhersh

Have walked the entire trail from Saxonville to Natick, as far as it goes. It’s a great trail, but clearly a work in progress. The Framingham side has no signs, and it took us several tries before we found it (just to the right of the fire station). The Natick side is complete as far as it goes, but it stops abruptly in the woods. Also along the length there are no designated parking areas.

Charter Oak Greenway

No markings at Bolton State Park

October, 2021 by elmarubtc

If you park in Bolton State Park to start on the east end of the Charter Oak Greenway you won’t find any markings for the entrance. It actually starts right at the RT44 West highway entrance to the park. So you need to go down into the lot to park and then go back up the entrance ramp to find the beginning of the Charter Oak Greenway, which is not even marked as such though.

Also fair warning to older riders I only went the first five miles west but that portion at least has very little flat areas, almost all of it is uphill or downhill. Heading west, mostly downhill, but heading back east mostly uphill, including one extended relatively steep climb. No problem for younger riders or riders in great biking shape, but pretty difficult for a casual rider.

On the plus side that portion of the trail at least is very well paved with virtually no divots or surface cracks.

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.

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.

Columbia Greenway Rail Trail

Smooth riding

September, 2021 by m.p.schneider.lc

I'm reviewing the Southwick Rail Trail and Colombia Greenway Trail together as I rode up from the Farmington Canal trail and didn't see where one ended and the other began.

The two trials are smooth, relatively scenic, well-marked, avoid too many road crossings (especially nice when in a neighborhood), and are a pleasant ride for any skill level.

On its own, the Colombia Greenway trail might be a little short but it connects seamlessly to the Colombia Greenway Trail, and then to the Farmington Canal trail, that is not as much of an issue.
