Ashburnham Rail Trail Description

More than a mile of the Ashburnham Rail Trail opened in 2015 from a point just south of Ashburnham's center to Turnpike Road. The rustic route, planned to be paved in the future, offers a natural-surface course through dense woodlands, providing ample shade and ideal environs for wildlife. Due to its surface, mountain and hybrid bikes are best suited for the trail.

In the near future, the trail will be extended south to Whitney Pond in South Ashburnham, with longer-term plans calling for a connection with the existing North Central Pathway in adjacent Winchendon.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Ashburnham Rail Trail is available on-street along Willard Road and at Landry Field on Williams Road in Ashburnham.

Very rough

West of Williams Road a deep ravine could use a bridge. West of Turnpike, a level section ends at private property. Towards downtown, rocks, trees, and roots in spots are appropriate for walking only.
