Radroute Lenox MA to Williamstown MA
The Western New England Greenway in this portion was mostly along somewhat heavily traveled arterial. So, not great, but there often was wide shoulder.
A really pleasant interlude from all the traffic on State Highway 8 was the few miles that we were able to ride on the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail. This trail appeared pretty new (relatively speaking) and had wonderfully smooth asphalt paving. We would have been overjoyed if it had gone on a lot longer, but it ended just north of Adams.
From North Adams, we rode on State Highway 8 and abandoned the Western New England Greenway in order to assure that we wouldn’t get lost or too far out of our way trying to get back to Williamstown. The Greenway runs north of Williamstown, meaning that we would have had to figure out how to get back to it.
