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.

A really nice bike path. Will look to do other rail section nearby next time along with side excursions. Plenty left to explore here!!

Definitely an easy walk until you extend the length. Great place if you're just getting into hiking. It's flat, but lengthy. The path is well kept, mostly shaded, and some nice scenery. The path is completely packed gravel; lots of bikes there. Great place to bring the kids and dogs.

Well maintained and easy for taking the family out on. It's also long which provides an opportunity to really stretch the legs out with your favorite doggo!

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
