Parts of the 22-mile Southern New England Trunkline Trail, a bike/hike/ski/equestrian path connecting the Franklin and Douglas State Forests, are in bad shape–but a new $20,000 grant should help fix that. The state’s Department of Conservation and Recreation plus the Bay State Trail Riders Association provided the money, which should also make the trail more accessible to wheelchairs.
