Section 3 begins at the edge of the Westfield River. The Westfield River is often crossable on foot, however, there is a volunteer who is available to drive people when the water is too high. To arrange transport with a few days notice, please email Heather. The roadwalk to go around the river is 3 miles.

Meandering below a level, sandy plateau and passing below the Pioneer Valley Sportsman’s Club, this section of trail returns to higher ground when reaching the West Springfield Municipal Watershed land. The bridges on this section are old and will be replaced in the near future.

The Lane Quarry is visible through the trees to the west as the trail heads north on West Springfield’s public water supply land toward the Mass Pike.
