We’re excited to continue Bedford Trail Walks with a Leader! Meet at Bedford Public Library at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday January 8th. Then hike through the Old Reservoir / Valente land area.
Please join the Bedford Trails Committee for a walk through the Old Reservoir / Valente land area, led by Peter Desjardins. Known as “The Old Rez,” the Old Reservoir land is one of the Town’s most interesting and popular municipal open space areas with diverse terrain surrounding the picturesque old reservoir. The dam and historic well house, built in 1908 and renovated in 2013, add to the appeal of this serene wilderness area. The reservoir itself is no longer in use as a public water supply but the area has been maintained for passive recreation. One of the significant features of the terrain is its changing grade. Steep inclines and declines provide for more strenuous hiking than typically found on other trails within the Bedford trail network.
