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.

We are beginner / leisure bikers who enjoyed this flat, well-paved trail with beautiful water views. The trail is ten feet wide with plenty of space for two-way traffic. There are clear mileage markers for both directions. Any significant bumps in the trail are clearly marked with red spray paint (helpful for bikers). Clean picnic tables and benches along the...

This treasure is being destroyed by dog poop! It's on the trail- left over from winter and new - left there recently- and on the grass on the sides of the trail. It's everywhere! Totally disgusting! It doesn't disappear, folks! Pick it up! I don't want to bring it into my car on my shoes or the wheels of my... More

The idea is wonderful for runners bikers and yes dogs, but on short leash only (understandable). We came in just outside of the Berkshire mall entrance and wanted nice view of water and to walk dogs with out a long terribly long walk.. We didn't make it to any small lake but what we did see what beautiful landscape Is... More

This trail is a nice ride, very flat, shrouded in trees changing color, and even quiet on the North end. We rented bikes from Berkshire Outfitters at the south end of Adams, and the trail was a very short ride from the rental shop. Bikes were in excellent condition, and they have a 3 your rate for a mere $25.... More

This paved trail through 11 miles of wooded area is a great find -- wonderful for walking, biking, skating, or jogging. My spouse and I discovered it on a day when it was too slippery from recent rain to go hiking in nearby mountain areas. The fact that the trail is flat and paved made it perfect for easy walking....

Loved this trail! We biked it three days in a row. Ten miles each way and mainly flat. Scenic as it runs along the lake when going north. If you start at the southern end there is a gradual uphill for 4 miles. Bathrooms at both ends.

This segment of 11 miles runs from Pittsfield to North Adams MA. A portion of it runs along a busy road, mostly obscured, but you can hear the traffic. Soon it veers away, running along a beautiful reservoir and through forested property. It runs fairly flat and has plenty of places to pull aside; there are plenty of benches as... More
