Cheshire is a small community in Berkshire County with heaps of fun outdoor things to do, most notably the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail and the Appalachian Trail which goes right through the center of town, perfect for long hikes and bike rides.
The Ashuwillticook Rail Trail is a converted railroad, now a 10-foot wide paved trail very popular with hikers, cyclists, and runners. Watch out for scenic spots along the way, as the trail winds through woods, past lakes, and toward the Hoosac River. While en route, stop off at the popular local farm shop, Whitney's, in Cheshire and savor some well-deserved local produce.
There are also opportunities to hike, cycle, and run along the Appalachian Trail while watching for wildlife. This part of the trail takes visitors to Dalton from Cheshire and on a clear day, boasts picturesque views.
Visit during fall to see the colorful foliage.

— As a mom of 5 kids who enjoy traveling, I love AllTheRooms! It is quick and easy to find the best deal on lodging that fits our family, in the area we'd like. AllTheRooms really does save you time, money, and hassle.
— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
— I love AllTheRooms because it enables me to compare a range of providers in just one search. I'd normally spend time checking prices across a range of platforms by visiting different websites one-by-one, so this helps me to save time on my accommodation searches while planning my upcoming trips
