The Tri-Community Greenway follows the route of the Boston and Lowell Railroad and its Stoneham Branch, originally built to serve Stoneham’s shoe factories and provide passenger service. The trail begins at Wedgemere station, which serves a Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) commuter rail line.
In the first section, the trail travels between an active railroad and a park along the Aberjona River. In Winchester Center, the trail continues along the river, passing by stores and ponds. A spur route to Horn Pond intersects the trail near Spruce Street. After Spruce Street, there is a gap where you must bike on residential streets for about half a mile. The trail resumes at Irving Street and continues to follow the Aberjona River, passing through forests. After crossing into Woburn, there is another gap.
The trail follows the Stoneham Branch railroad corridor starting at Central and Grape Streets in Woburn. It crosses under I-93 using a tunnel, then enters Stoneham. The trail circles around the center of Stoneham, providing access to many stores and parks. The Tri-Community Greenway ends at Gould Street, across the street from Recreation Park.
You can access the trail via the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) commuter rail service; the trail begins at Wedgemere Station (25 Mystic Valley Pkwy., Winchester) on the Lowell Line. If driving, parking is also available at the station.
At the north end of the trail, parking is available in a lot on Pleasant St. between Spring St. and William St. in Stoneham. There is also parking at Pomeworth Field (12 Calthea St., Stoneham).
