Richard Byrne, Norfolk’s town historian, in conjunction with the Norfolk Rails to Trails Committee and Norfolk Land Trust, will lead a walk to the famed Stoney Lonesome Pass along the old rail road bed. Richard’s historical account of the old CNE railroad, abandoned more than 80 years ago, will include a fascinating re-creation of the great train derailment which took place here in March 1882. Meet at the trails entrance on Ashpohtag Road, the hike will last about an hour and a half. Please ware appropriate footwear for hiking through the woods and bring water.

The Rails to Trails Committee organizes a bike event, the Tour de Forest, in October. Learn more about it and the committee’s work on Sunday, August 6, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at their booth on Robertson Plaza.
