Mystic lakes is another possible "mystic crossing".
It's 300 feet the short way, but 3 miles the long way because you're not
allowed to use the dam. The big challenge here is cultural. Wealthy
homes and a boat club are on one side. The other side is a parking lot
that attracts people with much lower incomes.
Perhaps the design of the new dam could anticipate a pedestrian
crossing, even if it is not immediately open to the public.
