AYER — Looking to expand the town’s trail system, the Greenway Committee plans to hike a proposed trail route behind one created last year off Groton-Harvard Road.
“A group of us have scouted out a potential trail,” committee member Patrick Hughes said during a Jan. 27 meeting.
The next step is to hike the trail with a Global Positioning System (GPS) device to map it out and keep it within the conservation land.
“We are trying to keep trails having a theme,” said Hughes. The last trail built has a geology theme.
The committee plans to hike the trail as a group after its Feb. 24 meeting.
In addition to trail building, Hughes said committee members need to think about trail maintenance as well.
Committee member Steven Smith has already been maintaining the previously-built trail which his family donated the land for. — Richard Breyer
