Two Rail Trails and a Wildlife Refuge

The Assabet River Rail Trail lies on the north side of the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge and the proposed Mass. Central Rail Trail borders the south side of the  Refuge.  The potential exists for a future connection of these two rail trails  via the roads in the Refuge.  The Mass. Central right of way is now managed by the Department of Conservation and Recreation.  This meeting will review status and progress of the rail trails.  The Bruce Freeman Rail Trail crosses the Mass. Central in Sudbury about two miles east of the Refuge.
