Westborough Charm Bracelet Trail System
"In wildness is the preservation of the world."
- Henry David Thoreau (1817-62), "Walking," in Atlantic Monthly (Boston, June 1862).
The Westborough Charm Bracelet is a planned network of trails throughout the town of Westborough, Massachusetts. The network will consist of three major pieces:
- A roughly 28-mile loop trail around the community to connect most of the major open space areas within the town
- A network of side trails to interconnect every open space, recreation area, school, and neighborhood
- A set of trails to link Westborough to all the surrounding communities
Work on the Charm Bracelet has been ongoing since the year 2000 through the efforts of the Westborough Community Land Trust and the Town of Westborough Open Space Preservation Committee . Through the use of existing trails in town and the construction of extensive new trails, a significant portion of the work has been completed.
