WICKED LOCAL – A new spot for locals to exercise and enjoy nature is about to open.
The new 33-mile Boroughs Trail Loop – which connects Marlborough, Southborough, Northborough and Westborough – will open Oct. 4 after years of planning and work. The trail will connect the four communities through existing routes and newly created trails.
“It’s going to bring a lot more connectivity to the towns,” said Melissa Danza, Southborough conservation agent.
A grand opening will be held Oct. 4. A guided hike kickoff celebration will be held Oct. 5 and guided hikes will occur on all legs of the trail throughout October.
“Everyone’s very excited,” said Danza.
Trail sections in Northborough and Westborough are finished. Volunteers are building bridges and boardwalks, including a 300-foot boardwalk over wetlands off Boundary Street in Marlborough. Eagle Scout candidates from the city completed a portion of the work this spring.
