Twin Cities Rail Trail

Plenty of intersections and traffic lights.

July, 2024 by mdenettesr

We hit this little trail on a warm afternoon when we had two hours unscheduled. The Leominster end was fine and the Fitchburg end was rather a rough neighborhood. We were riding tandem, so the many stops were slightly vexing. We spent most of the ride shifting down to dismount or shifting up from dismounting. There were plenty of dining options all along the route, and ice cream at the parking spot. Room for 6 cars, but plenty more right at the municipal Carter Park. At 0.2 miles, we smelled something really good. Ate lunch at Taqueria El Amigo 2. It was a very nice little Mexican restaurant with pineapple, mandarin, and other interesting sodas. The food was very good.

Spicket River Greenway

Methuen Rail Trail - Spicket River Greenway - Not Recommended

July, 2024 by jcenh

The Methuen Rail Trail was beautiful, but short. Strongly recommend it if in the area.

To extend the ride, we connected to the Spicket River Greenway.
We only went half way, into Lawrence.

Spicket River Greenway trail was filled with homeless people, trash / litter, and bad smells. We felt VERY unsafe and turned around.
Not Recommended

Commonwealth Greenway

Lovely suburban bike ride or walk

July, 2024 by msandman1943_tl

Follows the route of the Boston Marathon, including Heartbreak Hill. Very pleasant and easily accessible from Boston, Brookline and western suburbs. Most of the route is completely separated from cars on Commonwealth Ave. Lots of places to stop for refreshments and it's a short detour on Center St.'s restaurants.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This trail had sand, deep in areas made it not fun for gravel biking.

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
