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.

The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail is a delightful walk no matter where on the trail you pick it up. It is flat, accessible to all, provides benches here and there to sit and take in the beautiful scenery of the reservoir. The day we walked was very hot and humid, so do bring water, you might need it. You can picknick... More

The great thing about this trail is that from wherever you start, you can go as far as you want and turn around and still get a great ride. The trail is approx 11 miles running between Adams at the Northern end and Lanesborough from the South. Plenty of people ride 5,8 or 11 miles depending on how they're feeling.... More

This is a wide flat paved trail, a little noisy being next to a highway. It's easily accessible. We walked from Lanesborough to Cheshire and back. The state of Massachusetts has a good description on their website under Energy and Environmental Affairs, Agencies, Dept of Conservation and Recreation, MassParks West. Whitney's Farm Market is a good close place to eat... More
