The Connecticut River Walk and Bikeway, which will one day run 21 miles along the river, currently has two open segments. The longest stretches 3.7 miles from the Chicopee town line to the South End Bridge in Springfield. Unique features of this segment of the trail include its path alongside an active train line and its passing in close proximity to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
Another trail section begins in Agawam, just south of the South End Bridge, and continues for 1.7 miles between River Road and the Connecticut River, offering scenic views of the waterway. It ends on the eastern side of Borgati Park, just north of Six Flags New England.
