Don’t follow the directions on AllTrails to get to start of trail. Go to Columbia Greenway trail - Shaker Farms golf course - there’s parking.

Took the bike out to ride the Westfield, MA bike trail and onto the Southwick trail. They're part of the Columbia Greenway going down into Connecticut.

Easy paved path. Great for biking. Kind of boring for walking.

This is a paved trail that was mostly used for biking although we walked it. The scenery is beautiful and we will come back when we have more time to walk a greater distance or bring back the bikes.

Love the friendly people in the morning. Some walking dogs, strolling, biking, rollerblading or just skateboarding along!

Walking

Very beautiful walk in the fall. I have 3 dogs and love to walk them off leash. Was a little difficult to walk them and let them go since there seemed to be a lot of traffic (bikes, skateboards, runners, etc.). It may have been just a bad time but very beautiful!!
