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).
