October group walk recap

This month’s trail walk on the SNETT was extra entertaining as the wooded path featured a StoryWalk(R) book. The group strolled the Bellingham section of the SNETT starting at the Center St trailhead. Along the way kids and adults took turns reading the placard pages of “The Golden Acorn”. (Spoiler Alert: Basically friendship is the biggest reward!). Within the group was even a family represented by four generations! Autumn colors are really starting to bloom on the SNETT, so be sure to make time to visit.

We would like to thank our volunteer Darren Marino for organizing and leading the monthly group walks and we hope you can join us for our November one too. Keep an eye on the events on our website and/or our Facebook page for more details. See you on the trail!

Walk before the heat

Thank you to all who have joined us today for our dog/group walk. We walked from the Grove Street to Prospect Street in Franklin and back. On our 2.6 mile walk we have enjoyed the shade of the trail, saw beautiful nature, walked by Wadsworth Farm on Spring Street (you can read more about the history at the kiosk nearby or on our website), where you can purchase beautiful flower pots, fresh blueberries and enjoy the views of fields and meadows. We have met other dog walkers and runners who were out early to beat the heat. Our volunteer members also cleaned up the parking lot area and trail entrance area before walk – thank you!

Please keep en eye out on our event page here or on Facebook for the future walk and event announcements. See you on the trail!

Before walk – the dogs were not feeling like posing for the paparazzi.

Dog walk/group walk on the snett

Please join us on Friday, July 19, 2019 for a dog walk/group walk on the SNETT rail trail. We will start at 9am from the Grove Street trailhead in Franklin. Parking lot is across the street from the trailhead (next to Metcalf Materials). The trail is shaded and an easy walk. Please bring leash and anything else you and your dog may need on the walk.

No dog? No problem. We welcome anyone to join us!
