Chicopee River Canal Rail Trail Description

The Chicopee Center Canal Walk offers a short pleasant route in Chicopee, a small city on the outskirts of Springfield in southern Massachusetts. The pathway closely follows the slow-moving canal and is lined with tall elm, maple and sycamore trees. Signs along the way tell the history of the canal and benches provide places to stop and enjoy the scenery.

Currently, the walkway is just over 1,000 feet along a former industrial railway, but progress is being made to stretch the trail further east to the Uniroyal Property at Oak Street, a 28-acre manufacturing site dating back to the late 1800s. From there, the trail will continue through the Chicopee Falls community to Deady Bridge (Broadway Street). The extension would add access to the city library and Szot Park.

Parking and Trail Access

On-street parking spaces can be found at the trailhead on Front Street across from the Chicopee City Hall Annex. The entrance to the trail is well marked with a large sign.

Brian's Review

there is a small section of pavement near city hall. The trail does keep going but is dirt and rock. great for riding and walking. during the late fall and early spring you may spot an eagle on the dirt section.
