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

Great for biking and walking. One can travel from Pittsfield to Adams on a flat service. Lake Cheshire enhances the beauty of your time on the trail. Plenty of benches to stop along the way for your pleasure.

Peaceful setting, plenty of bird-watching, scenic views, especially around the lakes. Can't wait for the foliage season to be at its peak.

This rail trail is a real gem. The scenery is exquisite and every time I'm home this is the only place I turn to for a nice early morning walk. Been doing this for years throughout the four seasons and it's the best and really only place where bikers, rollerbladders and just us old plain walkers can all enjoy. Anyone... More

Took advantage of this gem while vacationing in the Berkshires. There is parking at the entrance to the Berkshire Mall with restrooms. It is a fairly flat 11 miles to Adams, slight down grade and a little up hill coming back for the 11 miles back to the parking lot. You will cross several streets, well marked. The trail passes...
