The town of Northampton is the home to prestigious Smith College and is known for its active community government. This short but sweet bikeway is an urban greenway that links downtown Northampton to spectacular Look Memorial Park. Surface: Asphalt. Location: Hampshire County. Parking is not available at the beginning of the trail, so it’s best to park in downtown Northampton. This small city has been getting a lot of positive press lately. The residents of the community have done much to preserve the city’s history. A popular tourist destination, the downtown area, which covers several blocks, brims with boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops, and trendy brew pubs.This is a perfect trail for people wanting to spend a short time in travel but a longer time exploring Northampton and nearby Look Memorial Park. It’s recommended for families wanting a children-friendly park at the trail’s end.
