Get a look at new trail
Area residents are invited to come see the progress being made on the construction of the Everett section of the regional recreational trail being developed by Bike to the Sea. On Saturday, the organization is hosting a walk along a portion of the 1.2-mile Everett section. The tour will begin at 9 a.m. at Prescott and Tremont streets, one of the main access points to the trail, which is set to be completed by late spring. The group also will provide an update on the overall progress of the trail, which when complete would extend along a former railroad right-of-way from Everett through Malden, Revere, and Saugus, and finally Lynn, along a designated on-road route from the end of the right of way to Lynn Shore Drive. At 10 a.m., those taking part in the tour are invited to help erect a kiosk for the new trail. For more information, contact Clay Larsen at email@example.com.
