On Saturday 11/28 I hiked in Middlesex Fells and followed the reservoir trail mostly. I collected half a black trash bag with of garbage and it was disheartening to see the amount of used dog poop bags along the trail. 
On a more positive note, about a month ago I hiked trails in the fells from Greenwood Park and didn’t see ANY trash along the trails!

@KS719 - Thank you so much for taking the time to make Middlesex Falls cleaner for those who hike after you! It is also great to hear that Greenwood Park was so clean the last time you went.

We love hearing these updates and seeing photos. Thanks for sharing with us!
