Southern New England Trunkline Trail (SNETT) in Franklin.
We will hike for about 45 minutes to one hour.This should get us off the trail before dark.
The SNETT is 22 miles long and was acquired in 1984 by the Massachusetts Department of Management and then designated as a National Recreation Trail in 1994. This trail passes through six communities: Douglas, Uxbridge, Millville, Blackstone, Bellingham and Franklin.
The story goes that early 1900s entrepreneur who was a driving force behind the proposed rail road was on the Titanic and did not survive the ships’ sinking. The rail line project died with him and construction was not completed. Now it is a trail for walkers and bikers
Parking is at the trailhead at 240 Grove St Franklin, MA
Afterwards, we can have dinner and or drinks just up the street at
British Beer Works
We will arrive at the restaurant around 7pm.
