The Dundas Loop

One of my favorite short bike rides (about six miles total) in the Northfield area is the ride out to Dundas and back, returning on the section of the Mill Towns State Trail from Dundas to Sechler Park in Northfield. In Dundas, the trail passes through a small woodland which reminds me of England. I like to think of it as the Dundas Spinney, to give it an English-sounding name. Beyond the woods, the trail runs parallel to the railroad tracks and Armstrong Road, past the Northfield compost site, and across the tracks into Sechler Park, where when the boys were younger we spent so many hours watching Northfield Youth Baseball Association games at Malt-o-Meal Field.

Below are some photographs from the ride: the Dundas Spinney; phlox near the entrance to Sechler Park; Malt-o-Meal Field.
