Shining Sea Bikeway

Great Walking Trail

August, 2017 by patscanlon1600

Love this walking trail...does anyone know distance from Quaker Road entrance of bike path to Peter Pan bus station on Depot
Street in Falmouth, MA?

Assabet River Rail Trail

Nice ride.

August, 2017 by ellenkillam

This is not a super long trail but since it is pretty much all up hill going from Hudson to Marlboro, it still gives you a work out. That being said you should start in Hudson so the way back is down hill.
We did not go on the trail that starts in Maynard because it was closed.

Assabet River Rail Trail

well maintained and dog friendly!

August, 2017 by tadlewog

I parked on Sasseville Way in Marlboro and headed toward Hudson with my pooch. We walked only for about a mile and a half, but met nice people, and other dogs as well. It was well marked, clean, and even had a few trash cans along the way!

Mass Central Rail Trail

Not Dog Friendly

August, 2017 by tadlewog

I didn't find anything about whether dogs were allowed or not anywhere online. I went to two different parking areas near Holden, where they very clearly state "NO DOGS ALLOWED." I was very disappointed, as this was the explicit reason for my trip - to bring my pooch with me!

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

great easy trail

August, 2017 by sgmcnair

Beautiful and well maintained trail. Quite flat and pretty environment.

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

The description above is out of date.

August, 2017 by rogersweeny

The break after Route 122 in Blackstone now picks up at the parking lot off of Canal Street, near the corner of St. Paul Street. Going west from this point is about 3 miles of wide graded asphalt trail. The old Triad Bridge has been redone and is a safe beautiful crossing. I saw a lot of people--walking, riding bikes, pushing strollers, even skateboarding--when I rode this section a few Sundays ago.

But at the end of this section is Route 146 (a limited access divided highway) and there are no signs telling you how to cross it or to get back on the trail on the other side.

Ashuwillticook Rail Trail

Ashuwillticook Trail Serenity

August, 2017 by paisleybird

A well maintained, serene, lakeside, forested and gentle day on asphalt . This scenic ride through small towns was full of reminders of past manufacturing and local efforts to attract more riders of all ages. The Adams town visitor center was brand new.
Lots of benches and fewer picnic tables allowed for stops and lunch breaks.
A polite mix of strolling, riding families, couples, friends and single participants added to a soothing day of healthy exercise!

Southern New England Trunkline Trail

Latest information

August, 2017 by 23rock

Several have commented on the section of trail between Lake St., Bellingham and Prospect St., Franklin that was upgraded in June, 2017. Great!
You might like to know that west of this section and the improved trail to Center St, the one mile of rough trail between Fox Run Road and the new Route 126 tunnel is now under design. This includes a new parking area just east of Route 126.
It is state policy to add improved sections to existing improved sections.
Also, a DCR manager was quoted in the Boston Globe recently as saying that design work on the trail over the Blackstone Viaduct to the RI border would begin this fall.
It is important to realize that DCR has to jump through many hoops before construction can begin. But, keep pushing for results!

Cape Cod Rail Trail

Dennis to Orleans is nice.

August, 2017 by ellenkillam

We did this trail in 2 days, Dennis to Webster then Webster to Wellfleet. The trail is nice and scenic Dennis to Orleans because you go by some ponds. There are some nice beaches and a state park where you can cool off. There is not much scenery from Orleans to Wellfleet. At the end of the trail in Wellfleet there is a general store and port a potties. You would have to ride about 2 miles on route 6 which is very busy or go about 5 miles on very hilly roads to get to any restaurants and that is pretty much all there is in Wellfleet. I suggest take a break at the end, get some food at the store, then head back. Or just go to Orleans. If you do go into Wellfleet and come back route 6 go all the way to the Marconi Beach turnoff where there are walk lights for an easy crossing.

Ware River Rail-Trail

Quiet but challenging

July, 2017 by ktrenaud

Just did this on 7/30/17. The trail is flat but lots of loose golfball & tennisball sized rocks to keep you alert. There's also a fair amount of of loose surface due to gravel and too much ATV use. If you want peace & quiet this is the trail for you. Beautiful swamp areas & a small cemetery a few yards off the trail. Lots of very old headstones certainly makes for an interesting resting spot. It's intersected by several dirt roads so be careful when crossing. Bring plenty of water on hotter days, you'll need it!

Assabet River Rail Trail

Better than expected!

July, 2017 by joanna.launderville

There are road crossings, especially on the Hudson side of the trail, but they are very manageable. The path description doesn't do this path justice. It's a nice ride with frequent benches to take a break. There are hills especially going from Hudson to Marlboro. Enjoy!
