TOPIC: Upper Charles River Rail Trail

Upper Charles River Rail Trail 8 years 2 months ago #39

Good News!
SF&T has been a strong supporter of the Upper Charles Rail Trail.

"My little horse must think it queer...the woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep ...",
(R. Frost)

The rail trail is progressing. We are about to add another 6 miles to the trail.

Sherborn and Holliston signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement with CSXT and both towns completed the P&S required surveys. Sherborn's Planning Board just approved the ANR describing the parcel of land in Sherborn.

Sherborn will buy their piece from Whitney St* south to the Holliston line. Holliston is buying and leasing the railbed passing through their town. Holliston already acquired another section further south towards Milford. Combined these sections will add more than 6 miles. They need work before officially opened but after more than a decade of no progress things are moving quickly.

Milford opened Phase 2 a few months ago so they now have 6 miles of finished trail beginning in a the Holliston line and ending at their border with Hopkinton. Milford has a small section near their center to finish their portion of what is hoped to become a 25 mile loop connecting Sherborn, Holliston, Milford, Hopkinton and Ashland.

* "and miles to go before I sleep" The rail line north of Whitney is still in use and not yet available. When it is, the trail will connect up to Barber Reservation and the Bay Circuit Trail.
