This beautiful section of the Central MA Rail Trail, six miles round trip, crosses over the Quinapoxet River and leads you to River Street in Holden. Many families opt to ride bikes, scooters, skates, use strollers and more! About two miles into your trip, you’ll reach the historic site with paths and markers explaining the old textile mills once located here. Area families especially love the West Boylston entrance at Wachusett Reservoir. Parking lot is located on Thomas St., just off route 140 in West Boylston.
Tip: Plan to stop at Darby’s Bakery after your walk, located about a mile down the street at 76 Central St. Freshly made breads and pastries will satisfy the hunger you just worked up!
