Friends Of The Southwick Rail Trail welcome you to the beautiful, 6-plus miles of multi-use rail trail that passes through Southwick, Massachusetts.

Whether you cycle, jog, roller blade or just stroll along, we hope you will enjoy the open vistas of wetlands, agricultural fields, golf courses, and waterways.

The trail, which has been immensely popular since its opening in 2011, is administered and maintained by the Southwick Park and Recreation Commission with the help of several local volunteer organizations. The Friends group was formed in 2011, when several local citizens banded together and offered their services to the Commission. Since that time the group has secured State recognition as a tax exempt organization as well as federal non-profit 501 (c)(3) status.

Others from the local community and out-of-state have joined the Friends group, which sponsors an annual July Fourth Bicycle Parade for children and organizes a Spring Cleanup event, as well as performing various maintenance duties on the trail throughout the year.

You are invited to become a member of the Friends group as a means of expressing your enjoyment and appreciation of the Southwick trail.
Your support is needed to develop and utilize this wonderful asset to its fullest extent.
