Nice historic walks, but exact location of specific NRT unclear
I walked all the canal trails at Lowell NHP, and I know one of them or a combination make up the listed NRT. The trails themselves are paths running through the city and next to the canals. The four stars instead of five rating is because the maps are unclear and it’s not clear which one or combination is the actual NRT.
