Fitness Trail, Another reason to run our race.

IMG_20141005_141617web

 

Today volunteers worked at the Gilbertville Fitness Trail – painting the gate, clearing brush at the entrance and along the trail, and making the trail more inviting. The ten fitness stations were installed along the former railroad bed over the summer. The stations include various stretches and strength exercises, often two exercises at each station.

Great progress was made and the trail is nearly ready for the official opening on Saturday, October 25th at 2pm. The welcoming signs along Main Street will be installed in the coming weeks. Please take a walk and explore the fitness equipment and the Ware River! If driving you can park at the New Furnace Landing with the gazebo, and if you are walking the trail begins at the yellow and blue gate opposite the Hardwick House of Pizza.

Why run our race?

All the proceeds from the Station Loop Ramble 5 miler race go towards improving the Mass Central Rail Trail and the East Quabbin Land Trust. One of the projects to extend the current trail to Wheelright, MA. Here is a copy of the story from the East Quabbin Land Trust Page.

 

Clearing crew just starting to open the trail, and the pony truss is visible in the distance.

 

It was hot and humid yesterday out along the Ware River. With an early start our crew of dedicated volunteers made huge progress at the rail trail.

The first wave of trail clearing removed all the brush for half the distance from the pony truss to Wheelwright. Next step is to remove the old ties and then continue pushing back the brush and trees to widen the usable space along the trail.

 

Bridge decking timbers are fully installed on the new beam bridge section and more were delivered onto the pony truss ready for the next work day. If you are available next Saturday, please come help continue the great work begun to open the rail trail to Wheelwright.
