Cape Cod Rail Trail

Great fall ride!

October, 2019 by doreenvm4

We started the trail in East Dennis and enjoyed the scenic ride! Easy ride, well marked- this trail is well maintained compared to other trails we've ridden. Great fall day ride!

Assabet River Rail Trail

Hudson, Marlborough great for all riders

October, 2019 by bbuddy64

I've ridden this trail several times. Most recently today with my wife. Good workout if you start at Rte. 85 by McDonald's and push hard to Lincoln Street in Marlborough then head back and ride to the terminus in Hudson by Riverside Gun Club. Good 10.2 mile run that can be done in an hour after work.

Minuteman Commuter Bikeway

Excellent Ride Through History

October, 2019 by llkamitchell

We rode from Bedford towards Boston and then returned via Lexington and Concord. Trail was an excellent pathway into Boston and had we had more time we would have continued into the city. Historically this trail is a gem waiting to be discovered.

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

Still Large Gaps

October, 2019 by gfoote

The section from Route 122 in Woonsocket to Fox Run Rd in Bellingham is still undeveloped, rough, and even impassable in some sections. I'd advise to avoid unless you have a mountain bike and don't mind walking it.

I concur to the rough state of the trail just west of Route 146 too. Wet and walkable-only in some sections too.

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Really nice

September, 2019 by donjfarr

First what this isn't...an "off road" trail. No dirt or gravel.
However if you want a beautifully maintained paved bike path, then you found it.
Extremely flat with a variety of scenery from forest to wetlands to lakes to old industrial.
A lovely ride

North Central Pathway

Beautiful water view trail

September, 2019 by nwironen_tl

Park in Glenallen St. parking lot in Winchendon. Ride trail towards Gardner. On the way you will see rivers and wetlands, and starting now, beautiful foliage. After riding that stretch, head toward downtown Winchendon. This is a short section but worth the little side trip as it skirts a pond that reflects the colorful foliage.

Marblehead Rail-Trail

Great Trail

September, 2019 by dmcguire55

This trail has been well-maintained recently and there are so many great side-paths and conservation areas to explore. Good for walking, biking, dogs, and has a nice mix of dirt/gravel options.

Upper Charles Trail

Excellent Ride

September, 2019 by llkamitchell

We started in Milford and first rode to Holliston. The trail starts paved and then turns into a crushed stone but is well maintained throughout. Returning to Milford we then rode the other side of the trail which is paved throughout. Overall the trail is quite nice and a great option for two shorter rides or one long ride. Road crossings were easy and the traffic was quite kind. We have ridden in 33 states now and can easily give this trail a 9 out of 10. I will be posting a YouTube video of our ride using the username PedalPushin AK.

Assabet River Rail Trail

E Hudson lot next to Gun Club to Marlboro line

September, 2019 by mxi2002

Too many street crossings and too many hills. The ride back was a better. Next time, we'll park at Advanced Auto Parts, 157 Washington St to avoid all the street crossings in Hudson

Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail

Nice but noisy (I-95)

September, 2019 by diane83

This is an attractive trail. The map at the beginning seemed inaccurate, bc it shows circular trail(s) on each side of river but we couldn’t find any on the other side. Besides that, it was very noisy with highway noise from I-05.the VERY noisy

Reformatory Branch Trail

great experience

September, 2019 by kanishk

We have done this trail a few times as it connects nearby from the Minuteman commuter bike path. This is a great trail for a hybrid bike. You can connect from Lexington to Concord via this trail and then come back through the Minuteman Historic National Park trail. Overall, the trail is nice and goes through some ups and downs. We have done it as a family with kids and it was good. The views from the trail are also worthwhile.
