Lovely hiking and biking trail by the reservoirs.
Oct 2021
well paved trail and several parking areas to get on the trail or to enter a kayak or boat into the water. Lovely native shrubs and trees border the trail.

Great Walk Along Rail Trail
Oct 2021
My wife and I had a nice 6 mile walk (3 miles out and back from Cheshire) along the rail trail. While an overcast day, the trail was still being used by many bikers and walkers. A relaxing way to spend part of the afternoon.

Great outdoor experience
Jun 2021
This is a great trail, this time we hiked and only did part of it we will be back with our bikes and complete the trail. This is the best maintained rail trail I have been on, plenty of shade on a hot day, great scenery along the way. Well worth your time to get some fresh air and exercise

Perfection in a rail trail
May 2021
This is the Rolls Royce of rail trails. Since our last visit the entire trail has been repaved and it is fabulous. The path is uniformly 10ft wide with a gravel shoulder on each side. There are restrooms along the way and the road crossings are uniform and well marked. Great scenery including ponds, a river and marshy areas for bird watching. All in all a great place to visit on foot, bike, skates...anything, just go!

What's not to love!
Sep 2020
My husband and I drove out in the Fall to leaf peep and also to do the bike path. We started in Lanesboro and ended in Adams and back. My husband biked the 22 miles round trip, I walked the bike path for 1 hour and 10 mins and back and we met back at the parking lot.

There is a parking lot in Lanesboro, that has a port o potty at the trail head. We ended up parking up the hill, as the lot was crowded. Its an old mall, so plenty of people parked there and then walked/biked to the trail head.

Beautiful trail well maintained. The foliage was beautiful, walked an biked by water/ponds/lakes etc. About 1 hour in I hit the larger parking lot and lake where there were benches etc. There are also benches on the path as well.

Great day trip and will do so again.

Beautiful trail.

Good scenery, well maintained trail
Oct 2020
We rode the full length of this rail trail in October. The foliage and lakeside views were just what we had hoped for during this visit to Western Mass. The trail is extremely well maintained (in fact, a golf cart with a leaf blower attached to it was clearing the trail), it was flat and very scenic. At this time of year it wasn't too busy but I can see where it might be crowded during the summer or early fall.

Picturesque Fall Ride
Oct 2020 • Couples
We followed the advice of many bikers before us, and started in Adams, we parked in the Adam’s Visitor’s Center. We were on our way going home from Maine, and wanted one last bike ride in. This was our first Rail System Ride, and we loved it. Not many people on the trail (not sure why during Columbus Day Weekend), very wide and this one appeared to be just resurfaced. Like others said you go up a small incline, to start but than that will be downhill on the way back. What some people didn’t mention was the wind. We had the wind at our backs starting, and was facing the wind on the way back until you hit the wooded section. It’s so beautiful, the fall leaves were gorgeous, there were many benches and lookouts along the way. There is water most of the way. We now plan to find another rail system to bike next weekend!

Trail from Cheshire to Adams is still officially closed.
Sep 2020
We knew that part of the trail from Cheshire to Adams had been closed so we did some searching to determine its current status. The official web site for the trail indicated that work was being done until late August. We called the visitor center in Adams, but it is closed because of COVID. Saw a recent review on the web site that praised the new pavement and no mention of any closure.

We started in Adams and were surprised that the trail was closed. We were still able to ride a few miles on it until we encountered a police officer at one of the crossing. Had to bike on hilly Rt 8 until the center of Cheshire where we picked up the trail. Officer acknowledged that he gets grief from many bicyclist as the trail web site is inaccurate.

Many beautiful views from the trail

The trail is wonderful. The improvements this year make it even better than wonderful. The only complaint is that the portable johns being used need to be cleaned more than once a week. It here are so many,people using the trail, the Johns are filling up and need to be cleaned at least twice a week, maybe more. Previous to the portable johns, The staff
Did an excellent job of keeping the permanent toilets clean.
