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.

The former 104-mile Mass. Central Rail line from Boston to Northampton crosses the 25-mile rail line from Framingham to Lowell at a spot in Sudbury just north of Route 20 and close to the Goodnow Library. Portions of both unused rail beds have been converted into rail trails, the east-west Mass. Central Rail Trail (MCRT) and the north-south Bruce Freeman Rail Trail. When completed, these two rail trails will create the longest rail-trail network in Massachusetts. This meeting will focus on the MCRT where the exciting news is that the ink is almost dry on a lease of the 25-mile MBTA rail bed (Waltham to Berlin) to the Department of Conservation and Recreation for the construction of a rail trail.
