April 16, 2023 – Bruce Freeman Trail (Concord) – Massachusetts

Yesterday, Wilma, Gus and I Adventured to the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail in Concord, Massachusetts.  The Bruce Freeman Rail Trail is a twenty-five-mile Trail that includes the towns of Lowell, Chelmsford, Westford, Carlisle, Acton, Concord, Framingham, and Sudbury.  The Trail is 10 feet in width and is popular for:  biking, skiing, walking, jogging, and rollerblading.

We had a refreshing Adventure to the Bruce Freeman Trail. I was eager to explore this section of the Bruce Freeman Trail, just recently open. We parked right off the well-known Concord rotary and off we went. It was a beautiful day, although the sun and blue sky did not arrive until the very end of our walk. We explored trail in both directions, including several gravel trails off the main paved trail. The scenery was simple, but there were some water views, benches, a bridge, field views, and some flowers along the route. The pups loved walking and exploring. We mostly saw walkers, runners, and bikers, but did see a couple furry friends, one of which was off leash and far from the owner. We enjoyed this Trail for about two hours. So glad we could visit yet another portion of the Bruce Freeman Trail (This blog will not be rated).

May 23, 2022 – Assabet River Rail Trail (Maynard) – Massachusetts

Today Wilma, Gus, My Mom, and I Adventured to the Assabet River Trail in Maynard, Massachusetts. The Assabet River Rail Trail is approximately thirteen miles (upon completion) and runs from Acton to Marlborough.

We had a green filled adventure to the Assabet River Trail in Maynard, Massachusetts. I had explored the Acton portion of the Trail previously and was looking forward to visiting another section. I looked at the Assabet River Trail map online and found the “Ice Pond” parking as indicated. We walked along the trail, which was overall very quiet, running along the Assabet River. The trail foliage was simple, but lovely, the sun streaming through the canopy of trees. Along our walk we found a beaver dam, some swans in the River, and enjoyed studying the various flowers and greenery on the Trail. There were many bikers, several solo walkers and numerous dog walkers. We saw one dog off leash, but were thankful that the owner was respectful and leashed his dog when he saw us walking toward him. Our walk was leisurely and just right on this gorgeous spring day. We definitely chose a scenic section of the Assabet Rail Trail today (Rating: 4).
