Lets Go Explore!

Enjoy a bike ride.
While walking/hiking, be on a lookout for kindness rocks.  They can be hiding anywhere along the trail.

Winter Magic
Winter brings a special magic to the trail. Enjoy snowshoeing and cross country skiing close to home all winter long.

Nature + Literature = StoryWalk®
The FBRTC (Franklin and Bellingham Rail Trail Committee) hosted several pop-up StoryWalks® . Laminated pages from a story book were posted along a path that lead children and their families further along the trail and into the story. Everyone enjoyed this unique adventure.

Bring your best friend
Leashed dogs are welcome on the trail, but please be sure to clean up after them.

Monthly Group Walks
