On Wednesday, September 28th at 5:30, you can be there for the grand opening of the East Side Trail, running “from the lions to the lake!”
As of Wednesday, you will be able to start at East Park (the lions) and hike to Lake Quinsigamond (the lake), crossing only two streets, but also going through:
- meadows, granite quarries, and forest.
- different types of Northern hardwood forest.
- steep slopes,and gentle grades.
The trail walks along a City bathing beach, passes to the foot of Worcester’s historic old Coal Mine shafts (long since closed), and a spur to the Massachusetts Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial.
