This month was the 5th anniversary of the first 5 miles of the trail being completed, on a perfect September day in 2005. Today is Saturday 9/18/2010 and I’m back on the trail, participating in the bi-annual state trail census. That’s a state program where the various rail trail support groups in Massachusetts volunteer to count traffic on their trails, 2 times per year. Our group “Assabet River Rail Trail, Inc.” usually sets up where the trail crosses Route-85/Washington Street in Hudson. It gives us a great chance to chat with the trail regulars and meet new people. Thanks to Duncan, Jenn, Ed and Bill, who were our volunteer counters today.
Taking a breather from the census, I decided to walk down the trail to the High Bridge and Hudson Mill for my first visit in 3 months. But that’s the next post …..
