The southern half of the rail trail is undergoing renovation with milling and paving. Should be completed by mid summer. You can pick up the rail trail on Church Street in Cheshire from there north to Adams it is about 6.2 miles one way

I actually walked 3 miles, I had forgotten to turn on recording. Nice walk on an overcast morning. I saw quite a few birds; warblers, wood-thrush, cardinals etc.

Kind of a dreary morning but I forced myself to get out and walk. Overcast and temperature low 30’s. Uneventful but the views on the lake were still nice. I wasn’t inspired by take any pictures!

No bells & whistles - just straight, flat, and paved. Nice for a casual walk (probably a better biking trail than a walking/running one); bit busy when I went, too.

Excellent trail for walking or biking. Trail is totally paved and well maintained. Scenery varies from lakes & marshes.

Not meant to be a real challenge as it's an old railroad bed. Recovering from knee surgery due to an accident I received last fall coming down a mountain, this allowed me to get some nice views and enjoy a sunny day. Started in Lanesborough and went to to Adams then back in just over a couple hours, about 20 miles round trip. Many walkers along with cyclists.

rather boring straight and long trail, nice views on lake unfortunately quite rare.

Excellent path and not too crowded. Gorgeous scenery. We (wife and I) started on the Adams side of the trail. This was easier for us, as it was all uphill to begin and a smooth coast back.

Pretty much straight walk and there are very less people on the trail due to the 40 degree weather and wintry mix. It was beautiful with nice views of mountains and lake. The spring green leaves make it look like fall all over again. We had to return after 6 miles because we had to back another 6 miles and we did not bring any snacks.

As far as pavement goes, this is pretty nice. Clean, never very crowded and plenty of distance for hours of sight-seeing exercise!

A day out to fish the stream. Beautiful day and caught a nice rainbow trout!

If you park at the trailhead, you'll need to walk 2.5 miles before seeing the beautiful lake shown in pictures. I recommend driving down and parking at the additional trail entrance a few miles in. This is much closer to the gorgeous view!

Use the trail all the time. Gets a bit crowded in the afternoon, but head farther north (towards Lanesboro/Cheshire) and it gets less so. Glad to have this easy access resource nearby!
