The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) announced that the northern section of the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail will be re-opened to the public at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, Oct 9.
This 11-mile section of the trail was temporarily closed to the public on June 29, 2020, to facilitate resurfacing operations.
The project's contractor J.H. Maxymillian of Pittsfield will be on site for the next two weeks to conduct minor clean-up operations.
The southern portion of the trail was resurfaced and re-opened to the public on June 27, 2020.
The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail is an old railroad track converted into a 10-foot-wide trail. The trail runs 12.7 miles through the towns of Cheshire, Lanesborough and Adams.
Due to the State of Emergency declared at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in Massachusetts, the trail's visitor center, restrooms and picnic areas are currently closed.
