“An old railroad bed that may eventually be incorporated into the Central Mass Rail Trail.”
— JB Lowell
Other parts of this old railroad bed have been turned into segments of the Central Mass Rail Trail. So far, this part hasn't been touched and doesn't see many riders or hikers. It does, however, connect with several more interesting trails known as the Mill Street Bike Trails. 100 yards or so near the western end of the trail are rather swampy and some of the railroad ties were never removed. This section can be bypassed using some of the connecting trails.
