Great for walking, running or biking, trail is wide and many great places to stop and enjoy views. Once the 104-mile route of the railroad that ran from Northampton to Boston, the Mass Central Rail Trail is being restored as a multi-use greenway. Bicyclists, walkers, runners, baby strollers and young cyclists with training wheels, wheel chair users, cross country skiers and nature enthusiasts. Wachusett Greenways is building the central 30 miles of the rail trail through Sterling, West Boylston, Holden, Rutland, and Oakham.

Always a great trail. Well kept. Lots of benches along the way. Stone dust path. Great for bikes. Lots of ponds if your dog gets thirsty :-)

Great walk along the road to the Old Mill site which now features a beautiful waterfall, trail hiking beyond the waterfall is easy to moderate at time
