The Ashuwillticook (ash-oo-will-ti-cook) Rail Trail is a former railroad corridor converted by the Massachusetts Department of Recreation and Conservation into a paved multiuse trail. This 10.9-mile point-to-point trek has plenty of places to rest and picnic along the way. Enjoy views of the Mount Greylock Range across the Cheshire Reservoir. Informative signs will teach you about the area. From the parking area, the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail starts at the trailhead bathrooms (open seasonally during daylight hours) and heads north. This rail trail is multiuse, so keep an eye out for cyclists, runners, and people on skates.
