An 11 acre triangular piece of wooded land traversed by rugged rock ledges abuts Interstate 90 in Ashland. In June 2009, The Bay Circuit Alliance negotiated a public access license for this property. Last summer volunteers laid out, constructed, and marked a trail that connects the existing Bay Circuit Trail on Staples property in Framingham with the I-90 Oak Street Bridge to Ashland. Now on MassDOT property, the new trail eliminates a long and potentially dangerous road walk along Route 9 and Oak Street. Refer to www. baycircuit.org on the web and view map#8 for trail details.
The Bay Circuit Trail is a 200-mile trail and greenway around Boston from Kingston Bay on the south to Plum Island on the north. Founded in 1990, the Bay Circuit Alliance (BCA) is a non-profit, organizational coalition that serves as a catalyst for making this trail a reality. The Sudbury Valley Trustees is a regional land trust that conserves land and protects wildlife habitat in the Concord, Assabet, and Sudbury river basin for the benefit of present and future generations.
