Center Trail Description

The Center Trail runs for less than a mile from Hopkinton's downtown to its high school and middle school, providing a safe route to school for thousands of students. The wooded trail, which once suffered from a rough surface and poor drainage, was recently upgraded with a smoother stone dust surface, making it a popular place to exercise and relax for residents of all ages.

The trail uses a long dormant rail corridor, crossing three restored bridges on its trek through the woods. Immediate plans call for the extension of the short trail south to Chamberlain Street, but in the long-term, the Center Trail will become a crucial component of the Upper Charles Trail. More than 10 miles of that trail are already complete from Holliston to Milford, but future sections will branch out from Hopkinton, heading southeast to Ashland, Sherborn and Holliston, and due south to Milford on the same former CSX rail bed.

Parking and Trail Access

Limited parking for the Center Trail can be found at the Hopkinton school complex athletic fields on Loop Road (off Hayden Rowe Street).
