Partnership with Blackstone Heritage Corridor

Oh my gosh, Marjorie, another stunning blog! My phone battery was running out yesterday so I saved this blog about our adaptive biking event until this morning to enjoy with coffee. What a delightful way to start my day, and what a sweet ending to the blog with our Rock Star, (unofficial) therapy dog, Rocksie.
Thank you so much for your continued support and enthusiasm for our programs at the Blackstone Heritage Corridor, and for sharing this enthusiasm on your Easy Walks in Massachusetts blog. I’m so grateful!

Testimonials:

“Check out these books written by Marjorie Turner Hollman. ‘Find lots of wonderful outdoors spaces that are handicapped-friendly. Great for Parents, Grandparents, and Children too! Can’t walk very far? Distances of each trail are included, along with much more information as well to help you prepare to have a great time outdoors.’ I have spent some time walking with Marjorie and she does a FANTASTIC job describing the walks and hikes so you are fully prepared to enjoy your day.” Kelly Sipe, Somerset, MA, Beyond Your Limits Fitness and Recreation

Descriptions, notable features and photos of parks, ponds, river walks, farms and bikeways, each with detailed directions make it easy and intriguing to plan outings to 31 trails in ten towns southwest of Boston. Information on parking provided for all trails. Some have bathrooms, many allow dogs on leashes, and four are wheelchair (and stroller) accessible. Other activities available include biking at more than a third, and a limited number with canoeing, swimming, fishing, cross country skiing in winter and horse trails. I can hardly wait to explore some of the five Charles River walks. Highly recommended with some hidden gems. Mary Chitty, Somerville, MA
