Moosup Valley State Park Trail

Worst trail I've ever ridden!

May, 2022 by bopflu

The first couple of miles are paved, which makes up for the lack of scenery. But once the pavement ends, for all intents and purposes, so does the path. Between the mud, the rocks and the fallen trees, I spent more time walking my bike than riding it! And that's not even taking the horseflies into account. Not to mention the frighteningly steep drop-offs. How dare they call this catastrophe a bike path!

For reasons I won't get into, I've long despised Connecticut's Route 14 corridor (Moosup, Danielson, Dayville, Plainfield, et al). This malevolent excuse for a trail gives me one more reason to do so.

Phoenix Bike Trail

Short & Sweet

May, 2022 by oxlilemmiexo

Short ride but the path is well maintained and good scenery along the way. Some of the trail is closed right now and a downside is there weren't any place to stop along the way for coffee or lunch or good view at the end points.

Blackstone River Greenway

Woonsocket to Cumberland

May, 2022 by andrix

Beautiful day on this section of the Blackstone River Greenway. Trail is paved entire way and in very good shape with only a handful of road crossings. There were relatively few walkers/riders (Thursday), some benches along the way, a number of signs with historical write-up and nice views of some waterfalls. Overall an excellent 20 RT ride. Gave it a 4 only because of a few long "average views" stretches. The 195 Davidson Ave, Woonsocket, RI (northern point) address for GPS worked great.

Air Line State Park Trail

South from Willimantic 5*; north from Windham Rt 6 (went 2 miles) to Putnam 3*

April, 2022 by andrix

On e Bikes; trail to north from Windham generally passable but long wet areas (eventually turned around) and trail a bit rougher than going south from Willimantic. The south trail is in much better shape and had inviting scenery with streams, farms and wetlands/lakes + virtually no wet areas on trail. Went to RT 87 (about 8 miles) from Willimantic. Plan to do this again and go further.

Air Line State Park Trail

Pomfret section of trail

April, 2022 by aldcon_tl

Parked at lot on Railroad St off of 44. New parking lot and pavilion with new overpass for trail over main road. Took trail NE to Town Farm Rd. and then streets into Putnam. Trail in this section gets average rating of 2+. Trail base is coarse rock (1.5" +) with washed out ruts. Somewhat bumpy ride. Only good for bikes with wider tires. In Putnam went south on Putnam River Trail (excellent paved trail) south to bridge over Quinebaug River. Crossed river climbed up steep hill to get to old rail trail and took this back to starting point.
Next went SW from rail station on trail to Covell Road. This section of trail in very good shape. Hard packed gravel base. I'd rate this a 4. Easy going for most bikes.

Air Line State Park Trail

It could be better

March, 2022 by revgil

I live close to the Pomfret Station so I decided to give the Airline Trail North another chance. I had ridden from the new bridge north toward Putnam last fall and found that much of it to be unride-able. Today I headed south, and after a short time, I realized it was just too rough for my seventy year old body. Horse’s hooves and dirt bikes had dug it up.
It’s really a shame that the powers that be don’t pony up and pave it. I think that it could be one of the best trails in the country.

William C. O'Neill Bike Path

A beauty!

March, 2022 by towzwo

From URI through the quaint village of Wakefield on to beach-scene in Narragansett, well kept and smooth. Absolutely delightful !

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

bike trip from Franklin MA to Bristol RI, 2020

January, 2022 by cclaremcd

The parking lot in Franklin closes at dusk and this was to be an overnight trip so we parked at the Stop and Shop (2 miles away) and biked back to the trail. (tip: few bathrooms along the way due to the pandemic so using BR at S&S was key)-used this trail for about 7 miles - rough trail - Many rolling Moguls which were fun- several Stoney surfaces that we got off our bikes to walk over as we were afraid of popping a tire (hybrid bikes). The tunnel was under construction so we had to bushwhacking our way around it. Exhausting but doable (we’re in our 50s). In RI got on the Blackstone River Greenway to Providence then got on the East Bay Bike path to Bristol. Fun adventure!!

Cochituate Rail Trail

Great morning walk!

December, 2021 by s.donahue

My son and I decided to try out the trail as I had seen it being built. We were not disappointed - the trail was clear and had interesting historical facts along the way. We did have a little trouble finding the Natick entrance to the trail.

Cochituate Rail Trail

Beautiful Walk with Lots of Water Views

November, 2021 by carolleepan

So wonderful to discover this beautiful trail on a recent trip back home from California. What a pleasure to walk where before we only glimpsed these views passing by in the car from Route 9 or 30. I easily found a few various entry points by using Google Maps and was delighted with the gorgeous fall views. Most of the path had some nearby water features whether it was Lake Cochituate or a smaller stream. The path was well maintained and we enjoyed the feeling of being far removed from the hustle and traffic of the rest of the busy area, What a gift to the community!
