Join a guided walking group to explore extant portions of the Middlesex Canal, operational from 1803 - 1853, 27 miles between Charlestown and Middlesex Village (today's Lowell). In 1839, Henry David Thoreau traveled the canal from the Billerica Falls through Chelmsford, as described in A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers. Meet at the gazebo by the Billerica Falls. Easy 3-hour walk. High boots recommended. Governor Baker Covid-19 Orders observed. Contact  with any questions about the walk.
