It's been one week since the Walking City Trail website launched and already, I've started receiving emails and texts from folks who've hiked sections of the trail or even knocked off the whole thing!
The first person to report finishing the entire trail in one go is a hiker by the name of Brett who sent me a message via the trail website over the weekend. Similar reports have rolled in from Twitter.
The trail has also been featured in two additional reported stories. First, Grecia White met up with me for an hike along Section 3 of the Walking City Trail and penned this story for streetsblogMASS.
I also linked up with Will Katcher along Section 4 of the trail, right outside the Massachusetts state house, and his trail story for MassLive just went online, expanding press coverage beyond Boston.
Thank you, Grecia and Will, and thanks to all the local journalists and producers who've helped put the Walking City Trail on the map for Boston area residents and visitors! The city hikers are coming.
