My husband rollerbladed and my children (11 and 7) and I biked a few miles on the trail, beginning in Adams. It was easy and flat and very enjoyable for all ages and levels in my family. We will definitely go back when we visit the area again.

Very nice flat, fast bike path. Bathrooms at either end; the ones at the north end by the mall are just functional, the ones in the visitors center are much more welcoming. Plenty of benches line the path and there are a couple of sites for fishing, too. Worth a drive to.

I've round-tripped the Ashuwilticook trail 3 times over the past 45 days and it is a great rail trail. The first half of the trail (going north) is flat and the next five miles are downhill. I suggest that you start in Adams so you have a downhill return. Part of the trail runs along the Cheshire Reservoir and you... More

I can't wait to get back to the Ashuwillticook Trail. I rode it twice from Adams to Chesire. I'd love to have more time to go further. The whole portion I rode was scenic with a river or marshlands on sides of the trail. It was quiet, and with people but not overcrowded. At the marshlands I could hear the... More

Beautiful trail with great scenery. The trail is in very good shape with the few trail surface problems well marked. Good facilities with restrooms at the major parking areas. All the road crossings are well marked and are the same style so you know what to expect at each crossing.

We really enjoyed this bike trail as it takes you by a water fall, lovely reservoirs and lakes and other scenic places. It is amazingly flat and easy to do. We started at Adams because of the ease of parking by the visiting center and rode to the end (11 miles) and returned back to the car. There is a... More

The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail is such a blessing to the area people whom surround it. I love to throw on my sneakers, rollerblades, snowshoes or cross country skiis and take the trail as far as I can go. It is clean and well kept. Absolutely grateful to have access to this resource. Has great views all along the way!

We love this rail trail. It's just easy and beautiful... Plain and simple. We hit Berkshire Outfitters in Adams, rent bikes ($19 for 3 hours) and can easily ride the entire trail. Berkshire Outfitters is right on the trail so it's perfect. Great way to spend an afternoon or morning! Gorgeous and relaxing.

Thank thetoddbaker
