The Westville Lake Community Trail offers a short, scenic excursion along the east bank of Westville Lake in Southbridge. Much of the crushed-stone pathway is under a lush tree canopy. Along the way, you'll also pass a birding area which has a viewing platform for osprey.
At its northern end, a connection to the Grand Trunk Trail can be made for a longer walk or ride. That trail crosses the Westville Dam and travels to the Westville Recreation Area, a great spot to begin or end your journey as the park has a picnic pavilion and grills.
Parking can be found in the Westville Recreation Area. To reach it from downtown Southbridge, take Main Street/Route 131 West out of town. When the road forks, veer left onto South St. Continue for 1.1 miles until you see a road split off to your right; although unmarked, this is “Off S Street.” Drive on this street for 1.6 miles to a small bridge over the Quinebaug River, where the roadway becomes Breakneck Rd. The parking lot will appear immediately on your right after the crossing.
