Stay tuned for the official Grand Opening of The Chester and Becket Railroad Trail in Chester. The Chester & Becket Trail created by the Friends of the Keystone Arches and connected the Becket quarries with two finishing works on the valley floor in Chester. This single track line operated from 1897 to 1930, when trucks were substituted. Parking at kiosk on Hampden Street. #hikethehilltowns with the #westernmasshilltownhikers #hilltownhistory maps on
