  • New Fells plan

    Posted on September 25th, 2010 Matt No comments

    While the Fells are a bit of a drive or bike ride from Allston they are the closest large multi-use green space with hiking and mountain biking.  My overall impression of the plan is good, but I have to dive into it more…

    The community meeting was last week, but comments are still open.  DCR is running site walks this weekend (notice below)

    Thursday, September 30, 5:30 p.m.  – 7 p.m.

    Meet at the Sheepfold parking lot.

    Overflow parking will be available on Rt. 28/Fellsway East.

    The site walks will provide the opportunity to view and discuss

    on-the-ground conditions and Draft Plan recommendations.  The walks will cover the area of the Sheepfold proposed as an off-leash dog area, spider-web trails north of the Sheepfold, and portions of the Skyline or Reservoir Trails.

    The Draft Plan can be viewed at  To comment, email, write to Fells Trails Plan, 136 Damon Road, Northampton, MA 01060, or call Paul Jahnige at 413-586-8706 x20.  The public comment period extends through Friday, November 19, 2010.
