Another one of my wonderfully horrible ideas!

Posted by Ben Cote on May 27, 2011 at 6:56 AM

I've been thinking (sorry!). I wanted to figure out if it would actually be possible to have a Greenway running along the river from begining to end, like they are making on the Blackstone. Now, there are RR Tracks that follow the Blackstone all the way up, so this is not a big problem there. Not so easy here on our Ten Mile. Here is my wonderfully horrible idea. This year (quote me on that) I am going to walk the entire river in two days. I might need help in either getting to my starting point or getting home from my ending point, but I don't see this as a big deal at all. On day 1, I will start at the headwaters on the corner of High and Chestnut streets in Plainville, and using trails and/or roads will follow the river to Dodgeville. On day 2, I will do the same along the river from Dodgeville to Omega Dam.  Easy right? I will bring a camera and make an album for the web page. I'll let you know when I decide to this. Of course, I probably should have run it by my wife first, but I already posted it. Too late to go back now.

I was almost counting on it Bob. We need to get together to talk about it and look at maps. Probably during the break from leading hikes in the summer. What do you think?

I can show you pictures of your trip , I have already done most of it by water, but only from the Bungay to Omega

I don't think you can paddle above the Bungay. In my mind, the Bungay seems to be the larger of the rivers above Attleboro. Not sure why they called the smaller stream the Ten Mile.
