The Canalside Rail Trail is a 3.8-mile (6.1 km) trail, partially on old railroad beds, from East Deerfield, Massachusetts, to Turners Falls, town of Montague, Massachusetts. A short portion of the trail runs along town streets, but the majority is on a paved trail from which motor vehicles are prohibited. The northern terminus is Unity Park, on Barton's Cove, in Turners Falls. The trail was completed in Spring 2008. The southernmost portion crosses the Connecticut River on the Canalside Rail Trail Bridge.[1]
