Williams River Rail Trail, West Stockbridge & Housatonic

Last week we walked on the Williams River unimproved rail trail starting at the cemetery on Van Deusenville Road in Housatonic. It's a lovely trail about 3.5 miles north to the junction of Pixley Hill Road and Route 41 in West Stockbridge,  so a little less than 7 miles roundtrip. I hope some day more of this old trolley line will be repurposed for walking. Rail trails are an asset to their community, offering health benefits and enjoyment to both residents and visitors.

The trail is beautifully shaded, flat and wide. A nice easy walk!
Here the river is narrow and swift-flowing—our scenic lunch spot.
