The Southern New England Trunkline Trail runs 22 miles from Douglas State Forest to Franklin State Forest. The trail is one of the longest trails in Massachusetts, running through 6 towns. You can find marked trail entrances at each of these towns. The trail is popular to bicyclists, cross-country skiers, equestrians, and hikers.

The SNETT is not contiguous, and there are two areas where roads are used to connect the trail sections, one in Uxbridge and the other in Blackstone.

The SNETT is in various stages of improvement. The improved sections are in excellent condition. The unimproved sections have very variable conditions. Here's a town-by-town overview:
Douglas - unimproved, but typically good to great condition
Uxbridge west of Rte 146 - unimproved, a few long wet sections
Uxbridge east of Rte 146 - paved, great condition
Millville - paved, great condition
Blackstone west of town center - paved, great condition
Blackstone east of town center - unimproved, variable conditions
Bellingham west of Center St - unimproved, variable conditions
Bellingham east of Center St - improved, stone dust surface, great condition
Franklin - partially improved with great conditions, partially unimproved with variable conditions
