A wonderful trail for all.

An easy bike path for everyone. Both quiet and scenic. The section along the lake is beautiful. Great for walking and bike riding.

We had the perfect weather for a bike ride. Didn't complete the entire trail (approx.. 23 miles round trip) but still saw the beauty of the mountains, reservoir, foliage. We also saw a blue heron and a red eared slider (turtle) on the path.

We have pedaled rail trails in ten different states. The ideal trail is paved, continuous for a significant distance, well maintained, and close to dramatic scenery and water (rivers and lakes, and mountains), and not next to a major highway for most of the trip. This trail satisfies on all these criteria. It starts next to the Berkshire Mall just... More

I rode this trail after biking over Mt Greylock. Very nice trail with some good viewing points. I wished it extended all the way to North Adams.

I have ridden the length (and back) of this rail-trail from Lanesborough to Adams a bunch of times. Bicycle riders can go fast or slow, but must pay attention to the walkers, runners and rollerbladers. For bikes, the trail is 10.8 miles in length. There is a parking area at the Lanesborough end, but on a recent Sunday morning, it... More

I have rollerbladed this trail towards Cheshire lake (away from town) from the parking area at Russell Field at the bottom of Fisk St. Absolutely beautiful rollerblading through pasture and woods. Just make sure it's not the day after a rain or in the fall when leaves are falling. I've done the rollerblade in the fall with the leaves and... More

I live on this trail, and am on it every day, either walking my dog, cycling, or running. Beautiful, ever hanging views, mostly friendly folks, and a really nice surface!

You might hear a little traffic on route 8, but you feel like you are in the country on this lovely rail trail. It takes you through woods and past lakes from Lanesboro to Adams. It's an easy 11 mile ride. It's on a slight uphill grade from Lanesboro to Adams.

We road the bike path in May on Memorial Day weekend and it was one of those perfect days, not too hot and a bright clear sky. The Lilacs were in bloom everywhere and the entire ride smelled wonderful. The trail is very scenic and easy to manage.
