Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail Description

The Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail, which was formally known simply as Quequechan River Rail Trail travels along the northern shore of scenic South Watuppa Pond.  

The project created a ten foot wide paved surface with three foot grass shoulders that runs over a former railroad bed and five timber bridges to connect with Britland Park and Rodman Street.

The project follows a plan for a Quequechan River Greenway, drawn up by Lima, that includes improvements to Britland Park as well. Plans were first presented in April, 2011 and reviewed in 2012 along with other efforts to make Fall River more bicycle-friendly.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at Britland Park (Wordell St, Fall River, MA 02723) and behind Umass CIE (151 Martine St, Fall River).

Alfred J. Lima Quequechan River Rail Trail Reviews

This is an attractive trail. The map at the beginning seemed inaccurate, bc it shows circular trail(s) on each side of river but we couldn’t find any on the other side. Besides that, it was very noisy with highway noise from I-05.the VERY noisy

What a gem! If you enjoy walking, jogging, rollerblading, cycling, etc., on your own or with family and friends do not hesitate to explore this trail that will only get better with it's expansion. The beauty is extrodinary, the history fantastic. A little paradise in the middle of this historic mill city.

Explore Fall River further with it's restaurants, dining, waterfront and museums. We welcome you to enjoy!

great place to jog and very peaceful love it go there every day. best thing that ever happen for Fallriver ma

Accordion

This is a nice little bike path. It is still under construction, but most of it is done. I wouldn't go at night, since it is in the middle of the city and very secluded.
