Mattapoisett Rail Trail Description

The Mattapoisett Rail Trail is a work in progress. As of autumn 2011, it runs for just more than 1 mile between Reservation Road at Mattapoisett Harbor and the Phoenix Bike Trail in Fairhaven, joining the latter at Shaw Road. The trail occupies the former right-of-way of the Old Colony Rail Road, which dates to 1851 and once called the "Old Colony Mile."

Parking and Trail Access

Access the Mattapoisett Rail Trail from Brandt Island Road or from the Phoenix Bike Trail.

Mattapoisett Rail Trail Reviews

Short and wonderful. Very smooth and gentle hills. I could not tell where this one and Phoenix joined, so it was all one to me.
