Explore the most popular birding trails near Uxbridge with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This is a fun walk, ups & downs are mostly easy, with a few steep exceptions. I skirted the outer edges of the hill on my second trip there, increasing the distance to 3.1 miles.

This is a very nice woodland walk, if you are looking for a mostly easy but sometimes challenging trek. Most of the way is very easy, but there are definitely moderate hill climbs, as well. I plan to revisit this hike regularly.

Really buggy at the very beginning near the pond, but once you get further along on the trail bugs disappeared. Trail was easy to follow and there were very few roots, but it did get tight in the middle and could use having some of the brush trimmed back.

Great little loop trail. Probably could have brought a stroller along most of it.

Lots of wildlife and beautiful views

Just an update. I am one of the ranger here at West Hill. Due to safety reasons and changing boundary areas with private property owners along this loop trail we have had to close the northern section of this trail. Signs are posted on the east and west sides of the trail. We have begun clearing two new loop sections of the trail that will allow further access to the interior of the forest on a Red blazed trail on the west side (left side of the map) of the former loop trail and an Orange blazed loop on the east side (right side of the map) of the former loop trail. We will be posting new maps and signs soon.

Nice wooded area with variable terrain. It is moderate for an MTB. In warmer months there are a good deal of hikers and dog walkers so be cautious and control your speed. Some of the single tracks can be technical due to exposed roots. Usually a decent workout.

I would change rating to "easy" being that it was flat. Not a fan of having to walk a stretch on road with very fast traffic going by. Reconnects to forest trail. There were some interesting stone foundations . I can only rate this a 3

Nice trail with good views of the river

Nice, well kept trails. Signs need improvement. Friendly staff. Encountered some nice birds and a black snake when we went exploring off trail. Will come back and try some other trails. We had fun !!

A nice trail, certainly kid and dog friendly. I was expecting something a little more challenging but still enjoyable. Done in mid-January.

The portion I visited was the Blackstone Gorge. It is at the end of County St. in Blackstone, MA. This is a small place to hike (1 mile or so), but has great views of the Blackstone River and a kayak launch. It is a peaceful hike and the views are amazing.

Good family trail! In and out trail so it can be as long or as short as needed. Very busy at th visitors center but thinned out a lot as we got further away. Mild terrain with slight elevation climbs. Use 287 oak st uxbridge as a GPS address if u have trouble finding.

Saw a ton of fish and turtles. I saw one so small it would've fit in my palm, one so large I'd need an extra bedroom. Easy walk with a lot to see.

A group of nine of us set out on this 8 mile excursion. There were lots of beautiful views at different elavations. Some trails where more difficult than other but easily achievable by all. It is definitely a LONG hike but totally worth it!!

The Blackstone River and Canal Heritage represents a reclamation of a former industrial site. The first trail takes you along the towpath of the Blackstone Canal, through Plummer Trail, which ends on Church Street. It is especially interesting to see all of the former channels of the canal complex and how they are filling up with water again . . . come back in a few decades and we may see wetland.

The other portion is the King Phillip Trail/Lookout area. It is not connected to the first trail. Instead, it runs from the Quaker Road parking area to the Hartford Street area. I didn't like the idea of simply turning around and backtracking on the main trail to drive to the Hartford Street parking lot, so I did a road hike from the Church Street parking area to the Quaker Road area. I wouldn't recommend it to everybody, especially those with kids, due to the road conditions I found. Also, picking up the trail from Quaker Road is a little confusing.
