The Leominster Trail Stewards will host a walk along the Nashua River on Sunday, June 3 from 12 to 3 PM to celebrate the American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day. Hikers will meet by the Babe Ruth’s McLaughlin Field parking lot on Lancaster Street after completing approximately four miles of trail hiking. The walking route will stretch through the surrounding wild areas, cross Fall Brook and head to Johnny Ro Veteran’s Park. Hikers are advised to wear proper hiking attire, bring plenty of water along with a snack or lunch, insect spray and bring other items, such as cameras, as desired.
The Leominster Trail Stewards are a group of volunteers dedicated to keeping the community network of trails in Leominster clean, functioning and appropriately used by the public. They became an official group in 2010 after the destructive ice storm of 2008. Dozens of community members worked tirelessly after the storm to erase the damage it did to the trails and began to realize the true value of the Leominster trail system. The Leominster Trail Stewards have since been improving and maintaining the area and promoting appropriate community use of the 25 miles of trail in Leominster.
