Letter to the Editor: Trails don’t need painted rocks

by | Sep 22, 2021 | Letter to Editor

As the HALT [Hopkinton Area Land Trust] steward of Center Trail and at the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon, I respectfully request people to stop leaving painted rocks on the trail. People come to the trails to escape the bustle of motorized traffic and enjoy our town’s abundant natural beauty, not to look at painted rocks.

— David Dollenmayer, Hopkinton

    I am co chair of Art on the Trail & member of the Hopkinton Cultural Council, this passive recreation exhibit with HALT’s permission iis taking place in a couple of weeks on Center Trail. The painted rocks at head of trail were done at PolyArts last week and are being used in exhibit some are currently marking spots where artwork is going. Post the event near the end of October anything put out for Art on the Trail will be removed.
