Welcome to the Upper Charles Trail – Portal. The Upper Charles Trail is a proposed 25-mile trail that will incorporate the communities of Milford, Ashland, Sherborn, Holliston, and Hopkinton, linking the towns via an abandoned CSX rail bed.
Milford was the first to open a complete 6.58 mile section and it extends from the town center north to the Hopkinton town line, east to the border of Holliston and south to the Milford Senior Center.
From the Holliston Reporter:
Rail Trail Committee Says Onward to Sherborn
The rail trail is now complete from Central Street downtown to the Milford line albeit a small 500 foot length near the dwellings being constructed by Pulte Homes. This short section will be completed within ten days, according to trail member Herb Brockert.
While the paving is complete for this section of trail a number of projects are complete or ongoing with the younger set in town. Eamonn Powers for his National Honor Society Project is undertaking Brown Trout improvements as well as invasives removal. Five Eagle Scout Projects are under way. Ben Cappello is conducting a rail cleanup, James Hathaway – Arch Street Connection, Jamie Ogilvie- Story Walk Trail, Owen Savage – Railing at Chicken Brook, and Harrison Smith – a project to be determined.
Ed Daniels from the Friends of Holliston Trails joined the meeting to discuss his plans to install flashing beacons at Central Street and Lowland Street.
The Trail committee is looking for volunteers to help complete the decking at the Arch Street Bridge this Saturday at 8:30 am.
Hey, this is great! Thank you ‘FlyTheBlueSky’ Enjoy and everyone, happy trails.
