Nice easy trail. Well kept w/ lots of birds at the "lake".
Where I'm from they're called ponds. Found myself in Gainesville w/ time to kill so...

This is a great and simple trail around the lake at Chicopee.

Fantastic afternoon hike. We did the full 4.5 - 5 miles in about 3 hours, taking time for my girlfriend to take a million pictures, get drinks and snacks out of the backpack and just not getting in a hurry. You forget that you're right by 985 and in Gainesville.

Well marked and maintained trail. 25 degrees the day I was there and still birds and deer were observed.
