Easy trail to ride and so beautiful

very nice for family walking, biking, etc.

It’s a great path you do want to get off it every now and then too see the beautiful views

Decent rail trail. A bit short for biking. Better suited for walking/running. No bathrooms at either trail head. There is a johnny on the spot in a parking lot in downtown Hudson. Otherwise you need to invade one of the businesses along the trail.

Multiple street crossings. But they all have pedestrian activated lights and drivers are respectful and stop.

Perfect jogging route if you prefer a paved path. Very gentle inclines. Very well maintained. Not at all crowded on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. There are benches and fences at intervals that are handy for stretching. Road crossings have signals that give crossers the right of way. I parked in the municipal lot on Jefferson St. behind Kelleher Field.

Love the water views between Falmouth and Woods Hole. The trail leading north from Falmouth is great too. You ride through a Cranberry bog and take in a few water views too. Will come back and ride this trail again.

pure tension relief. great riding for fun. leaf peeping will only enhance its beauty in next few weeks.

Very well marked and maintained with some stores and Cafe's within reach during your ride. There are both walkers and bikers sharing the oath which could get busy in populated areas but nothing to stop anyone from enjoying the day. We road from Dennis Bike Rentals to Nickerson State Park and back which was about 18 to 20 miles round trip.

Started in N Falmouth, parked my car in the lot at the top of the trail head and biked to the ferry at Woods Hole. The trail is well maintained.

Beautifully paved trail. The last 10 miles were hard but absolutely amazing. I saw a snake, a turtle and lot and lot of chipmunks. I did this all the way to end beyond Dennis 0 mark and came back. Somehow my recording shows 47.1 miles total. I took a detour to fort hill so I have stopped the recording and started again when I am back on CCRT. Now I ended up with two recordings.

Beautiful ride to Woods Hole!

Nice, easy trail for biking. Mostly flat and all paved. Starts out at Cross Point towers in lowell provides a pleasant, mostly shaded ride with a lake/beach along the way. Bring a lunch and relax at the picnic tables, or grab a slice of pizza at Zesty’s along the way in Chelmsford.

Walk on this everyday...love it!

Such a beautiful trail. Nice and smooth and wide. Very well marked road crossings. Bike pull offs with benches. A couple nice ice cream and food places along the road in the Northampton section. We continues onto the Manhan section to Look Park in Florence. This trail was narrower and a rougher surface and no benches that we noticed. Look Park was beautiful. Our total ride was 31.1 miles round trip

Beautiful trail, and nicely done. The view of the ocean is gorgeous and there is always something to see on the trail. 21 mile never went so fast! Definitely recommend!

Bucolic. Views of ocean and kettle ponds with benches for taking in the scenery.

What a great trail. 1st time down the Cape biking. Can't say anything bad about it. Biked the whole thing and did some side road biking too.

Bruce Freeman rail trail is now expanded into Acton. The description should be updated to inform walkers and cyclists the features of the full rail trail. The new section called Phase 2 begins in Westford at Rt. 27. The new section includes Westford, Carlisle and Acton. The new section has mile markers and I believe better warning lights at the crossings. There is a bridge that crosses Rt. 2. Many beautiful upgrades to the new section which is all paved as is the first phase. Many benches. There is a winding section that is pretty fun to ride on that is parallel to some businesses. There is a beautiful engraved granite marker pointing you to which direction to continue with miles listed to the towns on the rail trail. At this marker, the rail trail turns toward Acton or you can ride into a park.

awesome ride to the beach and back. went off route couple times to check things out. Great campground along the way.
