Minuteman Commuter Bikeway

Superb, with lots of easy access points

July, 2024 by msandman1943_tl

This is a paved and well-marked trail that starts at the Alewife MBTA Red Line station in Cambridge, where the is a parking garage, and runs north & northwest through Arlington, Lexington and Bedford. It's been well used for years by people out for a walk, cyclists out for a pleasant ride, families, and bike commuters. Once past Arlington Center and across Massachusetts Ave., the trail runs through a tunnel of trees as it goes past suburban back yards, village centers and conservation land. There are lots of access points and places to hop off and get food and something to drink, and numerous benches along the trail where you can take a break. Toward the end, you cross a bridge over Interstate 95/State Route 128 heading into Bedford.

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.

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.

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.

Head of the Meadow Trail

Bike/walk trail between two beaches

June, 2024 by andrix

I decided to bike this trail just to see if there was a nice plus that would offset its shortness. Alas, there was not. Yes, the surface was excellent but the entire way high brush prevented any sighting of the surrounding dunes, ocean or potential wildlife. I was there at high tide so could not verify the existence of a visible 1872 shipwreck at low tide near one of the beaches.

Beautiful trail

All the previous posts are right on so I won't duplicate. Here's an add: Pie in the Sky restaurant is excellent for sandwiches, wraps, cookies, etc. But wherever you purchase, get takeout and, if nice wx, go down Water St. a few blocks and enjoy the park with benches and views, typically few people and - of course - your meal.

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.
