Bay Circuit Trail Section 10

| June 30, 2017

12.84 miles; Concord, Lincoln, and Wayland, MA I apologize in advance for the length of this post, but in my defense, it was a) a VERY long hike, and 2) there was so much cool stuff! I began this section where I left off last week, at the Minuteman National Monument Visitor’s Center in Concord. […]

Steere Hill Farm

4.73 miles; Chepachet and Gloucester, RI This was a mental health hike, not far from a family obligation. I didn’t have as much time as I would have wanted, but I did manage a good pace and a good hike. I’ve hiked here before and this place is really a lovely spot. Wish I could […]

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

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

| June 15, 2017

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

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 […]
