Long known simply as “Sandy Road” by Riverton neighborhood residents, this trail runs along the train tracks and into the woods, and is great for running and biking. The sights and sounds of freight trains moving along the tracks often break the otherwise quiet atmosphere through the woods.

How to get there: From Morrill’s Corner take Goodridge Avenue to a boardwalk to Carriage Lane, then Broadway and then right at Wall Street to the “Sandy Road” portion of the Rail Trail. From Forest Avenue the trail can be reached via Wall, Libby, Harris, or Newton Streets.
