I don't know how old this summary description is but the rail trail is now fully paved. It incredibly scenic - flat almost the whole way. Absolutely beautifully kept.
I rode this trail back in June in between monsoon rain storms. I was so glad to be ouside I would have given a cow path a good review. This trail is a very sceanic one. Starting in Pittsfield it's down hill to North Adams. The part of the ride along the lake is very nice. The pavement is new and I found few flaws like frost heaves. There are picknic benches all along the train for riders to chill on. The Housic river flows next to the trail and gets steeper as you get closer to the North Adams end of the trail. My odometer recorded 25.6 miles round trip. I enjoyed it and I hope you will too.
This rail-trail is now paved and has several parking areas and porta-potties. This is one of the most scenic rail-trails I have done, and Adams was a nice town to visit.
