Beaver Brook Trail
The Beaver Brook Trail was established in 2007 after several years of planning. SFOC member Rita Corey worked with Greg Meister of the Sharon Conservation Commission and Denny Nackoney of the Bay Circuit Trail Alliance to route and mark out the trail, which runs southward from the Sharon Train Station (eastern parking lot) for about one mile to the southwestern end of the Sharon train station.
It is a convenient in-town trail and also forms an important link in the Bay Circuit Trail, a 200-mile “Emerald Necklace” walking corridor running from Ipswich to Duxbury. The Beaver Brook Trail was completed in 2007 by Sharon’s Boy Scout Troop 95, the Sharon Conservation Commission, and the Sharon Friends of Conservation. Its completion was capped by the installation of the Beaver Brook Bridge.The trail was extended in 2017 a by 1.8 miles to reach Berkshire Avenue. Boy Scouts Jeffrin Daniels and Scott Rubenstein re-routed sections of trail through woods which had before run along roads.

The Beaver Brook Footbridge
Sharon Friends of Conservation installed this 27 foot long footbridge December 8, 2007. Besides giving safer access to Sharon’s new Beaver Brook trail, it provides a link in the 200 mile-long “emerald necklace” Bay Circuit trail. For their help in building the bridge, SFOC wishes to thank the Sharon Conservation Commission, the Sharon Department of Public Works, Fields Pond Foundation (grant), the Bay Circuit Trail Alliance, Sharon’s Barney & Carey Lumber Co. (materials) as well as the dedicated team of SFOC members, Boy Scouts, and trail users who helped assemble the bridge at the site. Read more about the new Beaver Brook Footbridge…
