Quinebaug Valley Rail Trail

Beautiful Trail & Information

April, 2021 by jcbenoit

I was looking for a relatively easy trail near home to start off the season with and I found it! From the beautiful lakes along the way to the running water area (see pictures!) this was a lovely trail and I enjoyed it. I parked on Mill Road in Dudley; the parking area was easy to find! When deciding which way to go just don’t go toward the bench. Go instead toward and through/beyond the yellow gate instead. Only go the other way if you’re curious to see the rail ties discussed in another post on this site. Please know too that, even when heading through the yellow gate, way on the other side from about a mile to the end are some rocks that make traveling with the bike a real challenge (four stars for this reason). It’s worth the difficulty though if you’d like to go to the mall area at the end of the trail since you may want to eat/use the bathroom and then head back (there’s a Big Y, McDonald’s, etc.). Again, lovely trail and the middle area with the lakes makes it all worth it!

Nice trail for a short skate.

April, 2021 by suzylee492

This is a nice even, smooth trail, mostly flat and very easy to skate. Just a few small hills, I can usually build enough momentum to coast most of the way up. It's not very long so it's a nice stop if I don't have a lot of time. Can be crowded in the evenings, after work and school, lots of people walking their dogs.

Canalside Rail Trail

Easy & Flat!

March, 2021 by pianoemily

This is a really pretty trail. The long stretch along the water in Turners Falls is gorgeous and the paved path is wide enough that others can easily pass. As you continue, it narrows and the buildings nearby are kind of junky..... but it's worth it to be able to see the ducks and geese on the large water section.

Bridge of Flowers

Beautiful spot but not much to walk

March, 2021 by pianoemily

Bridge of Flowers is beautiful! It is so short, however, that I just wanted to make sure others knew it is very much a small space to look at flowers but certainly nothing to make a walk out of. Go and enjoy the scenery but I would not look to make this spot a walk of any real substance. It is more for stopping to look & take some photos. By the time you do that, you'll be done with the very short path.
