Checking out the semi-finished southern end of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail

I took a fairly short 13-mile bike ride this afternoon on the new, southern part of the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, over the not-quite-finished Route 2 overpass and on to the West Concord train station, where the trail ended. From there I rode west on Laws Brook Road to the Acton line before heading back and then north to NARA Park, where I looped around before heading back to my car. Stretches of the path were technically closed, but we all ignored the signs and barriers and had a great time.

Should a media defendant be able to keep sources confidential in a libel suit?


  1. I was just back to Acton this week after moving away 8 years ago and saw the bridge over 2A. The rail trail was talked about for 20 years – I’m so glad they finally did it!

    The BFRT does not end at the West Concord train station. It officially continues across Rt 62 for another 2 miles and is then unfinished for another 1/2 mile or so.
