Surprising little walk just steps from the Main Street , beautiful and peaceful river walk .Not a stressful walk or climb to get to .
If you're in the area, certainly take the walk. It's a nice little path and we enjoyed it. It's definitely not a "destination" though. Had we traveled more than 10-15 minutes to experience it, then it would've been a disappointment.
This is a lovely walk along the river, steps away from the main road through the town. On hot days it provides a cool, shaded place to walk. It was built, and is maintained, by volunteers to provide a pleasant trail and also to help to preserve the riverside ecosystem.
A beautifully designed, short walk along a very peaceful and pretty part of the Housatonic. Wish it were a good bit longer as it ended too quickly. Well maintained and nice brochure to go along with it. We'll try the other section of it the next time we are in the area.

Great walking path along the Housatonic. Strollable is the word.When I was there the river was flowing pretty well and made for some nice scenic stops.
This was quite a feat to clean up the Riverside and have a beautiful walk in Downtown Great Barrington.Very few towns have anything like this and it is one of the reasons that Great Bariington has been rated one of the Best small towns in America.
