Bay Circuit Trail Section 17

Posted By on August 21, 2017

6.05 miles; Medfield and Sharon, MA

This hike was interrupted about 2/3s of the way through due to a family emergency. I will have to pick up the hike here later in the week. It was nice, up till I got the phone call. I especially liked where I was when the phone rang—on an old path called “Old Indian Trail,” which ran along the top of an esker alongside Mine Brook and a railroad track.

It started off with a lot of road walking, probably 2 miles worth, which finally ended just past this railroad crossing. Yes, another railroad crossing!

And again

And again

Pretty sure this is the “trash train.” I seem to be crossing its tracks an awful lot!

There was also a long-ish stretch along some power lines before I made the turn onto Old Indian Trail.
