Nice enough for a paved bike/walking path but it’s right beside a road so it’s like walking on a sidewalk.

Overly dramatic park name

Easy loop with benches and pretty views. Makes for a nice constitutional when in town. Lots of dog walkers, joggers somewhat distracting - but hey, it's in a city.

Very nice stroll with benches along the walkway. Dogs seemed to be allowed off leash

$8 pp for non members, kids free

Easy trail to ride and so beautiful

very clean place to walk, very easy

very nice for family walking, biking, etc.

Very high traffic area. So much to look at like Boston views the ocean we even saw a deer. High intensity hills every so often and so oretty in the fall. Deff on of my favorite spots!

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.

parking is a pain, the pond is chained off and the area around it is not the nicest. would only go here if I lived within a few blocks.

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.

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

Nice option for a run after a rainy morning and over-night. There is a paved road thru this park which is up, down, and all around with options to veer off into the woods. Standing water on some trails so stuck to the road. Did a quick 5K after a Logan drop-off but then discovered I was trapped in the morning rush hour. No fun getting back home...

Great network of paved and dirt trails through the whole forest, including a disc golf course. Great smaller loop for dog walking or trail runs, and larger paved loops for biking.

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.

Wish it was longer.

awesome trail, great scenery and well maintained

Flat for whole trail. Easy walking. The lake is nice. Most of the trail is on a Major street so there is constant traffic along side where you are walking.

World's End is beautiful! Yes it costs $6 pp if you're not a member. It costs money to maintain green space. They just moved the gate this summer, so they are working out some logistics... the gate used to be at the entrance but the locals complained. Lovely spot for all - young and old, 2 and 4 legs. Views of Boston. You can get more than 3 miles if you take some of the side trails. Don't miss the Rocky area.

I’m on this trail everyday on weekdays. It’s a beautiful loop that’s fairly easy. Parking inside can be a pain if you aren’t a Cambridge resident. But there’s plenty of street parking if you come from Concord ave. It isn’t a moderate trail; it’s definitely an easy one.

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.

Who chargers people for a walk?

This was our first time here and my kids and I loved it. I walked, they rode their bikes. My only issue was finding where to enter the trail. We started downtown and it wasn't marked, at least nothing I could see. I was able to ask someone walking by and they showed me where the path was.

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.
