Bay Circuit Trail Section 14

Posted By on July 26, 2017

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…

Walking Through Yards

Walking Through Yards

The first part of this hike was actually me making up for missing the same part last week. I needn’t have really bothered. It was semi-urban, mostly roads, and at one point I was in somebody’s back yard. There were definitely BCT trail blazes, so I know I wasn’t off the trail, but it was still a little weird.

Mill Pond was where I parked last week. It’s a nice little park with a pretty little river walk. Which is not, actually, on the Bay Circuit Trail. Oops.

At-Grade Railroad Crossing

Then back out onto the roads, and at one point an at-grade railroad crossing.

The most “natural” part of this hike was through the cemetery. And yes, the BCT goes right through it.

And oh, parenthetically, today was my fourth “ankle-versary.”
