Bay Circuit Trail Section 14

7.15 miles; Ashland and Sherborn, MA Nothing much to recommend this section, either. Mostly road. Decidedly urban hiking with little woods sections between cul-de-sacs. Then a long walk on a busy road. Only redeeming feature? A Dunkin’ Donuts along the route. Hope this trail gets better soon… The first part of this hike was actually […]

Tefft Hill

4.2 miles; Exeter and Richmond, RI I had trouble sleeping, so when I was already awake at 4:30, I decided I may as well go hiking in the coolth of the morning. Turns out, not so much coolth, and it was so humid it was like walking underwater. I cut the hike short. Also, no […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 13

7.92 miles; Sudbury, Southborough, and Ashland, MA The less said about this section the better. Firstly, it was beastly hot and humid. Secondly, it was partly through an Industrial park. And thirdly, REASONS (which I will not go into). But I did cross both Route 9 and the Mass Pike, so this is for sure […]

Narragansett Trail Section 4

6.29 miles; North Stonington and Voluntown, CT and Hopkinton, RI This was an excellent, if exhausting, hike with the PCHC. Much climbing, both up and down, on slippery rocks, and a lot of tricksy water crossings. It was great to see some old friends and make some new ones, and we even, at one point, […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 12

8.7 miles; Marlborough, Framingham, and Sudbury, MA Well this section couldn’t have been more different from the last one. First, there was hardly any road-walking at all… maybe 1/4 mile. I didn’t even cross a paved road till well past halfway. Also, I managed to neither over- or under-estimate the mileage. It came in at […]

Bay Circuit Trail Section 11

10.53 miles; Sudbury and Wayland, MA Just once, ONCE, I’d like to OVERestimate the mileage on one of these sections. Although the difference between 9.8 miles and 10.53 miles isn’t as drastic as last week, it was still an underestimation. And ugh. Out of a 10.53 mile hike, 8.5 miles of this was on roads, […]
