TrailHeads

In April 2016, the Friends of Saxonville launched a new committee named the "TrailHeads" which is dedicated to the trails of all types in the Saxonville area. The committee includes several members of the Cochituate Rail Trail (CRT) committee. Because the CRT is essentially done and open, and because the Friends of Saxonville is already involved in the area trails, the Friends wanted to combine the experience and talents to continue the efforts to develop quality recreational trails.
