Franklin: SNETT Trail (Afterwork Series)

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.

    A friend in the other group checked out the parking, there's room for about 20 cars in the Trail parking lot and some latecomers could park on the road shoulder on the right on the way into the lot. If we have more cars, we have permission from Metcalf Materials (a Sand, Loam, Gravel place) at 230 Grove St. to park on the paved portion of their in and out driveways off the main road and up to their closed security gates. At Mr. Metcalf's suggestion we gave the Franklin Police Dept. a courtesy call to inform them they may see cars there tomorrow night. We must remind people who park there to use caution as there is a curve in the road and it's not a regular parking lot. They should back in as it will be dark when we are leaving.
