It may take a bit of a ride to get to an entrance point (if you bring your bike there). It's a flat ride on the trail through Lanesboro, Cheshire and Adams, MA. The scenery is awesome and the walkers and riders are very courteous...More

There is a variety of interesting terrain along the trail, including wetlands with beavers and narrow river plains. Only a small portion of the trail is near buildings, but you are never far from civilization. The nicest part of the trail, without a doubt, is...More

This is who we used: Berkshire Outfitters. They had good bikes and were reasonable. More importantly, they were open.
