Road the trail last week end-to-end as an out and back from the great southern trailhead parking area on Crane Avenue (bathroom). Trail is in excellent condition and a great ride.
Road part of this trail as an out and back in conjunction with the Southwick RT and the Columbia Greenway RT from Avon, CT, to Westfield, MA, an approximately 50 mile round trip (25 on the Farmington Canal Trail).
The trail is in very good condition. The transition to the Southwick Trail at the CT/MA border (with no road crossing) is seamless.
Road crossings decrease as you head north and are well marked with push-button warning signals to alert traffic.
Half Mile Falls Park at the north end of the Columbia Trail in Westfield is definitely worth a stop!

The mileage markers are great!

This trail should be a 5 but it is closed at Main Street in Westfield with no information on when it will reopen or detours.
Beautiful section in terms of scenery and access to lakes and ponds. The surface can be challenging. Today, with fairly dry conditions, it could be negotiated with hybrid bikes.
There are no curves or bends in this section. Just a straight line. There is a dirt track in the middle. For the kids there are signs with questions which is nice
It’s a beautiful trail. BUT, please beware of the yellow post they have installed at all the road crossings to keep motor vehicles off the trail. As I was crossing the road at one of the crossings, as I came back onto the trail my handlebar caught the post and sandwiched me in my bike and the bike and I went down hard. I ended up fracturing my back. So please be careful on this trail through Southwick.
The pavement is decent, but there’s no marked center line. Biggest complaint is that the trail primarily goes downhill as you go east, and primarily uphill as you go west, so you’re going to hate one direction or the other. Decent views. Poor road-to-trail transitions with broken up pavement and sand which is a nightmare for in-line skates. Much prefer the Cochituate rail trail
I do my run here a few times a month, It is so beautiful I really like it. It is so green and right next to the CT River the air is so clean. It's good for a long run where you can get up to 10 miles and it's a well maintained trail.
Love this rail trail !! Nice easy path , street crossings are easy to get thru. Great job by both cities.
Rode (7/22) from Winchendon to Baldwinville, and then (skipping the part bisected by Rt. 2) from from Rt. 101 in Templeton to Route 122 in Smithville on the Barre/Oakham line. Lots of wet and rutty sections north of Balwinville but still fun (some walking with 1.5" tires). Some sandy section in the southern piece but still fun. It's slow going of course. Didn't pass a single extra person. Good roadside fried food at Lee's in Baldwinville (it's been there for at least 70 years!)
Updates needed for map. Past the Ed Calcutt bridge, the trail spur to River Road is closed as private property. However the main trail has been completed along the river to Farquhar Road, adding about a mile to the existing trail. From the Farquhar Road exit you can take a left on the roadway to reach River Road.
