Diggin' this rail trail! I grew up in Hudson and even got to watch the building of some of this trail. It's great for a long walk, a jog or bike ride. And it's beautifully scenic as it scrolls along the Assabet River and through the ever-growing downtown Hudson area and into Marlborough. Worth the hike, check it out. (Park in Hudson. No parking reported in Marlborough.)

Great loop with moderate elevation gains. Very well marked, but a little confusing at some trail junctions. Mostly stay on Backpacker and Bear Paw with a few exceptions.

Well labeled and easy trail in the beautiful fall weather. We saw ducks, geese, a woodpecker, as well as reddish squirrels and chipmunks.

This trail was a surprise in a good way. It takes you through the bustle of Marlborough and Hudson. The many stops to cross busy roads will slow you down. However, it has many little treasures to make it unique. There is a scenic view overlooking Fort Meadow Reservoir, sections of wooded areas, a tunnel mural, and art along the Hudson section of the trail. I parked on Jefferson Street in Marlborough in the Kelleher parking lot across from Kelleher Field. There are at least eight spots and the trail is RIGHT there. Will definitely explore this trail again.

Easy to moderate trail on north side of Callahan. Nice, pleasant place to spend an hour or two. There are lots of side trails and loops that can be added to increase length of hike.

Open, clearly marked trails. Different landscapes to see from forest to meadow to lake-side - mostly shaded. Fun hike with the kids.

Nice trails with some good moderate up and down. Wildflowers, lilly pads, horses, and ferns.

Lots of variety in the terrain

Short and sweet. Nice elevation gain. Good quick workout on the bicycle.

An easy-to-moderate 1-1.5 hour loop that takes you past the lovely little Beebe Pond. Trail is well-maintained for the most part. Many confusing junctions, so pay attention to your map or AllTrails. Beautiful open forest crossed by the remains of many old rock walls from when this was farm land in the 19th century.

This hike is one of those urban gems - the chance to feel like you're in deep woods while you're in the center of an urbanized area. Added bonus is the loop to the summit of Mt. Ward, really just a large hill, which gives you some elevation gain for extra exercise, and has a pleasant bench under a curious-looking old maple tree at its summit. This version of the trail starts and ends from a nice little parking area with a trailhead map station. You'll find the trailhead parking on the driveway just to the left of the Alltop Mobile gas station on Rt. 20 (Boston Post Road) across from The Home Depot and Dunkin Donuts.

Paved bike path. Be prepared to see a lot of Marlboro & Hudson. I didn't see any parking on the Marlboro side where directions take you, ended up Peking t hospital bed walking 1/4 mile down. Lots of parking on Hudson end on Main St.

I'm not a biker but i thoroughly enjoy running on this trail. It is clean and paved and also marked you can tell how far you've run.

This is listed as a mountain biking trail, but it is completely paved. A fine trail for cruisers and hybrids, but too slow for road bikes, and there are no mountain biking sections.

I only completed the first half of the trail. the pavement was mostly smooth and wide enough for bikers and walkers. there were some beautiful views of lakes in the beginning. Mile 3.5-4 was a bit more in the city. Nice ride
