Hidden Treasures Canal Walk

Sunday, May 11, 2014 - 1:00pm

Sunday May 11, 1:00-2:15

In celebration of Preservation Month, walk along restored sections of the Blackstone Canal and Towpath as we search for hidden treasures! Discover an early stone quarry site and remnants of a stone lock, one of 48 such structures used to lift and lower canal barges along their 45 mile route. On this two and a half mile long walk, learn about the canal and the transformation of the agricultural landscape and discover the hidden heritage and natural wonders along the way! All ages are welcome. Rain cancels. Easy-moderate walk on dirt trail, hills, roots and rocks make this trail not stroller friendly.
