A huge thanks to Trust Director Rich Strazdas for his work editing and publishing the newest Westford trails booklet, our 13th edition! This edition has some great features including local school and student art as well as many new and updated trail maps.
On the cover is one of the wonderful mosaics at the Day School. Six were constructed over a year ago as part of a mosaic community art project, but they must be one of Westford’s best kept secrets. When Rich was looking for cover art, he was blown away, and had difficulty choosing which one to highlight. See them yourself at Day School, or preview them at http://www.westfordcatnews.org/2018/02/mosaic-art-project-bonds-community-at-day-school/
The booklet is sprinkled with all new artwork from Westford Academy art students. There are flora, fauna and landscapes. Thank you to all the students who participated in this project! Hope you enjoy our selection of trail maps, art and nature!
In this edition, you will find that trail maps have been updated with rerouted trails and new bridges. The Cider Mill Pond map includes trails on the recently acquired Adams property, extending the trail network to Providence Road. The Prospect Hill map has the pageant Field loop. (Check out the work on the wall along Hildreth Street, and the new bird and bat houses.) The Snake Meadow Brook map adds the recent loop north of the brook, considered the toughest trail in Westford. (Trade your stroller for a child carrier backpack.) There are entirely new maps for Emmet Woods, Kloppenburg, O’Brien Farm, Nabnasset School, Timberlake, and WA-Robinson-Crisafulli. Revisit your favorites, and discover new trails!
This edition is sooo big that it graduated from saddle stitch to perfect binding!
Look for Westford Trails at Town Clerk, Roudenbush, and Muffins on Main. The price remains a very affordable $5.
How about some Puzzle Time? Can you figure out where these trails are in Westford?
They are all different and all worth experiencing. Hills, streams, forest, marsh, your home town has it all!
