Bay Circuit Trail Section 9

8.75 miles; Acton and Concord, MA This section started a few miles south of the end of the Freeman Rail Trail, in a nicely wooded area in Acton. It was almost 9 miles, and unfortunately 4 miles of it was on roads, including the last 3, which ended at the Visitors Center for the Minuteman […]

Narragansett Trail Section 3

4.75 miles; North Stonington & Voluntown, CT The Facebook Group, Providence County Hiking Club, is hiking the Narragansett Trail in its entirety, in 5 smallish sections. Today’s PCHC hike was on a very humid day after a 2-inch rain the day before. So we got kind of damp. This is such an interesting and varied […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 8

7.6 miles; Lowell, Chelmsford, and Westford, MA Again with the Rails-to-Trails! So this section was pretty boring. It was a 7-mile-long paved bike trail built on the bed of old New Haven Railroad Framingham & Lowell line. I saw my first BCT blaze since Andover, one of only 2 total. And the BCT breaks at […]

Hop River Trail & Talcott Ravine

7.5 miles; Bolton, Vernon, and Rockville, CT First it’s too cold, and today it was too damned hot; high 80’s. Not fun. Also I think I’ve about had it with Rails-to-Trails for a while. Also not fun? About 2,000 cyclists and 1,000 joggers coming up from behind. This is an EXTREMELY popular trail. The ravine […]

Cliff Walk

3 miles; Newport, RI My sister-in-law and I have been wanting to walk this Newport landmark forever, and this weekend we finally got to it. It was a glorious day to be by the seashore, and the scenery was to die for. Great, great walk. For anyone not familiar with the Cliff Walk, it’s a […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 7B

7.83 miles; Andover, Tewksbury, and Lowell, MA This was the best of hikes, it was the worst of hikes… Not actually, but the first half was quite nice, while the second half was both on a bogus trail and in the city of Lowell. So not wonderful. Still, I got it done. The BCT ends […]
