The Western Greenway Trail - Trail Running
The Western Greenway Trail offers runners, hikers, and mountain bikers trails of various length and difficulty just 20 min from downtown Boston.
The 4 mile out-and-back option starts at James Falzone Park and ends at Beaver Brook Bridge.
Destination Distance From Downtown
At times the terrain can be quite technical (i.e. roots, rocks) so you'll need to watch foot placement. The trail is relatively flat with a few rolling hills.
Time To Complete
A 4-mile run on the Western Greenway will take about 45 minutes to complete; for a more advanced trail runner, closer to 35 minutes. The terrain is technical in spots and while the elevation change is minor overall, there are several small ups and downs.
Spring, Summer, and Fall
The trail is well maintained and accessible spring, summer, and fall. In winter it may be possible to snowshoe or run in a more durable trail shoe that's water resistant.
