January 17, 2021 – Chicopee River Canal Rail Trail – Massachusetts

Today Wilma and I Adventured to the Chicopee River Canal Rail Trail in Chicopee, Massachusetts. The Chicopee River Canal Rail Trail is a less then .5 round trip pathway along the canal. It is lined with various trees, has benches, and displays informational kiosks.

We had a simple Adventure to the Chicopee River Canal Rail Trail. I had planned this Adventure as one of the mini stops after our main destination. It took at a minute for me to figure out where to park, but we located a retail mall and decided to walk to the Trail. Upon arrival we found several information kiosks and headed down the path. The Trail was quiet, a nice separation from the visual needs of the community. The canal flowed steadily, but did not add any song in the air. One side of the Trail was lined with a decorative cement barrier, while opposite the canal there were mill buildings, mostly appearing to be apartment living. We walked to the end and turned around, only seeing one other fellow walker. The Trail was someone unappealing, but yet Wilma absolutely loved the smells along the way. Definitely not a place we will return but always glad to explore a new place (Rating: 2).
