The Wheelwright end of the Mass Central Rail Trail was the focus of the trail clearing crew yesterday afternoon. Because that end has fewer large trees and two sections of track were laid to the approach of the mill, the small trees and brush had taken full advantage of the sunlight. Thanks to Angelica, Peter, Shelby, Tom, Bruce, Mark and Cynthia great progress was made – the first several hundred feet are now ready to have the ties removed and trail graded.
Several weekends ago the trail clearing was started at the pony truss heading to Wheelwright. After another session of trail clearing the two should meet in the middle!
