Supporting Regional Trail Connectivity: Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for the Trolley Brook Trail

Congratulations to the Town of Ashland for continuing to enhance recreational opportunities for their community and neighbors. On Friday, November 19, the town hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil the Trolley Brook Trail, the first section of the Ashland Upper Charles Trail. This multiuse trail will be part of the regional Upper Charles Trail that will span five towns, consisting of Holliston, Hopkinton, Milford, and Sherborn.

BSC Group is thankful to have provided our technical expertise, including landscape, survey, and environmental permitting for this great initiative. Attendees of the celebration included representatives of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the Department of Conservation and Recreation. Funded by MassTrails and the Community Preservation Act, the Trolley Brook Trail includes a pedestrian bridge and new open space and wildlife viewing areas.
