Blue Trails

images-1A Blue Trail (also known as water trail) is a dedicated stretch of river that enjoys special clean water safeguards and is a destination for fishing, boating and other recreation. Just as hiking trails are designed to help people explore the land, blue trails help people discover rivers. Blue trails provide a fun, exciting way to get kids outdoors, connect communities to treasured landscapes, and are economic drivers benefiting local businesses and quality of life. Blue Trails become a community resource.

Trail opportunities abound in the 4 Rivers region. Initial ideas:

  • Quaboag: East Brookfield to Warren
  • Ware: South Barre to Gilbertville to Ware
  • Swift: Bondsville to Three Rivers
  • Chicopee: Red Bridge to Ludlow/Wilbraham/IO, Oxford Marsh

So far we have teams on the Chicopee in very early stages of trail review.
