February 28, 2021 – Bicentennial Trail and Boardwalk

Yesterday Wilma and I Adventured to the Bicentennial Trail and Boardwalk in Fall River, Massachusetts. Bicentennial Trail is a 2.2 mile back and out trail that runs along the Taunton River. The path is a paved trail and a boardwalk. The views from the Trail include the Braga Bridge, The Mount Hope Bridge, and the Bordon Flats Lighthouse. The Trail starts at the Fall River Heritage State Park and ends at Bicentennial Park, a memorial to Veteran’s of the Vietnam War.

We had a relaxing Adventure to the Bicentennial Trail and Boardwalk. Although we have been on this trail previously I have never blogged about it specifically, until today. We began our walk at Fall River Heritage State Park, the location of Battle Cove. This section of the Trail was definitely my favorite. The Battle ships are spectacular, the bright blue Braga Bridge adds a beautiful color and reflection and the Bordon Lighthouse is quite unique. The first part of the Trail is a Boardwalk, later becoming a paved Trail before ending at the Memorial.

We enjoyed trotting along the Trail, paralleling along the River. Wilma loved peering through the rails, walking on any raised barrier, and the smells of Fall River. I definitely enjoyed a walk on the River, however was unimpressed with the trash, and excessive goose poop on parts of the Trail. However we loved walking in new surroundings and met some friendly people along the way. Definitely a nice way to start our day of Adventures and walks (Rating: 3).

PS – I snuck some photographs of our first visit with Shadow and Wilma.
