Please join the Bedford Trails Committee for a free Trail Walk from the Minnie Reid Conservation Area (CA) to Two Brothers Rocks on the Concord River.

Purchased by the Town in 1986, the Minnie Reid CA offers varied terrain and habitats, including open fields, forested hillsides, woods, wetlands, a beaver pond and a vernal pool. Our Trail Walk terrain will also be varied, including flat trails, a fairly steep hill and rock steps.

Editor’s Note: Click this link to learn about the role of the Two Brothers Rocks in Bedford’s earliest history.

The roughly 3.5 mile walk will last about 2 hours.

When and Where
We meet at 9:45 AM at the parking lot behind the Bedford Free Public Library.
