Officials look for trail into wildlife area

Continue reading below

Town officials are looking into ways to provide a trail into the Burrage Pond Wildlife Management Area, which has been without in-town access since February, when a frequently used entrance on private land was blocked by the owners, who were fed up with trash and traffic. “We want as straight a line as possible to Burrage Pond” from Elm Street, said Town Administrator Charlie Seelig. He said selectmen are just starting to determine the uses for the trail and to seek design money. The wildlife area, currently accessible from Hawes Avenue in Hanson, comprises about 1,600 acres in Halifax and Hanson, with former cranberry bogs, open water, swamps, grassy marshlands, wetlands, and small streams. It is popular with birders, fishermen, hunters, and hikers.
