    PSA - 2017 Hopkinton-Everett Multi-Use Trail System Dunbarton/Weare Direction Changes


    Saw this on Facebook and figured it would be best to spread the word.

    The direction of travel on a couple of the one way trails at Hopkinton-Everett Multi-Use Trail System in Dunbarton/Weare NH has been changed.

    Stark Pond Trail, The River Loop and the BT Trail are all going to be running in the opposite direction than what they have been for the last few years. From what I have read this change was brought on by the Bureau of Trails and the Army Corp of Engineers requesting that the trails be run in the opposite direction.

    Also, when the long bridge on Stark Pond is no longer repairable, the Army Corps of Engineers wants to permanently close the trail. They seem to be unwilling to build a new one and will only allow it to be repaired.

    Wow...those changes will be weird. I guess I should reach out to MVTR about the Stark Pond bridge, that trail is my jam!

    It's not closing down yet as there are plans to raise and repair the bridge. I wasn't able to attend the May meeting so I'm getting my info from the meeting notes.

    • The Stark Pond trail direction of travel is being reversed.
    • The Long Bridge on the Stark Pond trail is being raised and rebuilt by BoT after suffering heavy damage this past winter. The Army Corp of Engineers (ACE) denied the BoT plan to replace the bridge. Due to wetlands impact, ACE wants to permanently close the trail when the long bridge can no longer be repaired.
    • This past winter Andre ribboned the new “Tuck’s Trail” single track; but it is on hold by ACE. Shawn Violette is commandeering a section of the trail as a replacement section of the Stark Pond trail to go around the whoops adjacent to the sand pit.
    • BoT wants MVTR to install 500 concrete blocks on the Bassett Mill trail. This will require an excavator. Funding has not been approved for this project (Andre and Steve will work on emergency GIA funding under Shawn’s recommendation and assistance for fast tracking).
    • BoT wants MVTR to reverse the direction of travel on the River Loop and BT trails. This will require us to pull down all of the mile marker signs and their backing boards and re-install them. The trail map that MVTR updated last year will require another revision.

    This is my favorite item. New single track and I hate that section of the trail.
