Bruce Freeman Rail Trail Sudbury Information

The Bruce Freeman Rail Trail (BFRT) will be a 25-mile rail trail between Lowell and Framingham, along the former Lowell Secondary Track right-of-way of the Old Colony Railroad. In Sudbury, the rail corridor extends though the center of Town, approximately 4.4 miles from South Sudbury near Route 20, north to the Sudbury/Concord Town line. The Town is in the process of designing the trail which is anticipated to be constructed with State and Federal support.
