First section of hiking trail system opens to public

The first section of a planned 40-mile system of hiking, walking, and biking trails atop old aqueducts in Boston and 13 western suburbs officially opened this week in Framingham.

State and local officials said opening the 1.1-mile trail along a scenic section of a century-old, no-longer-used aqueduct owned by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority off Elm Street is the first step in creating a lasting impact on the area for generations to come.
