“A 9-mile ridge trail with a great variety of terrain - climbs, views, streams, lakes.”— Will Guerra
The section near Wachusett Street is often overgrown and can be tough to navigate.
The last segment of the trail (Sholan Farm to Samoset School) is very difficult to navigate. There are no trail markers for almost a mile heading from Sholan to Samoset.
Trail maps are available from Leominster Trail Stewards.
This is a classic ridge-style trail with four long climbs and several other shorter ups and downs. Most of the trail is singletrack and doubletrack, but there is a ~0.25-mile stretch of road on Elm Street. To follow this trail end to end, simply follow the blue blazes. Parking is available at the end of West Street (northern end) and Sholan Farms (southern end). The trail crosses only two roads over 7.8 miles, Elm Street and Wachusett Street. There is parking at both of these locations.
The best view is on a cutoff section of the trail (yellow dot) near Elm Street.
The trail technically ends at Samoset School, but the last 1.2 miles (Sholan to Samoset) is very difficult to navigate.
