Went from Adams to halfway and back due to bike rental. That trip was 2 hrs at a leisurely pace. Trail had 2% up grade at start - that's basically flat. Shady trail till the meadows and lake. Nice that you can rest on benches or even buy ice cream if you need a break. I defined wish we had... More

Coming from Eastern Mass, this trail is always a pleasure. There is far less traffic than on the eastern Mass bike trails, and lots of natural beauty. I've seen a wide variety of birds during multiple trips, and a nice mix of sun, shade, woods, and lakes long the route. Walk or ride part or all of the trail depending... More

The trail is a paved 11 mike long trail. We walked while others cycled, skated,ran. The trail is 10 feet wide so it is easy for cyclists to pass walkers. Most of the trail we hiked was shaded by the large deciduous trees. We hiked from Pittsfield to Cheshire. Next time we will start in Adams or North Adams and... More

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
