Ludlow Reservoir Trail

2.3 Miles
Ludlow, Massachusetts

Water Source


The Ludlow Reservoir Trail, also known as the Springfield Reservoir Trail, is an easy and flat 2.3 mile out-and-back trail located on Route 21 in Ludlow, Massachusetts. There's a paved road that follows the shoreline of the around the entire reservoir but the public may only access the first 3 miles (one-way) - at which point visitors must turn back.

If you plan to hike or ride the entire trail, it'll be about 6 miles out-and-back total, despite the mileage in this recording. The entire southern shore of the reservoir is closed to the public, so the trail follows the reservoir along the northern shore.

This is a popular fishing and bike riding spot as well. Hunting is allowed in the adjacent woods, but is regulated. Only bow hunting is allowed near the road and rifle hunting must be beyond the ridge.

Hours: The parking lot is open from 7AM to 7PM daily; however, it's closed to the public on Wednesdays.
