Join Coach Cate, a Healthy Living Guide, on a bicycle ride along Assabet River and through the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge in celebration of River Fest 2013. The Assabet River traverses from the north of the Refuge outside the western boundary and some 90 acres of Refuge are in pockets on the river. The Refuge has 15 miles of trails for walking and some for biking.
Bike Ride: A 10-mile bicycle ride along Assabet River and through the Assabet River National Wildlife Refuge. We will travel on roads that are either hard-packed dirt or, in a few places, blacktop. Meet at the Refuge parking lot at the North gate in Stow, accessible from White Pond Road off Rt. 117.
The street address is about 1/4 mile before the parking lot. Keep going down White Pond Road, across the bridge and into the Refuge, the parking lot is about 100 yards further.
I rode this trail last weekend. The road is nice and shady and has some good views of the river which it runs along.
