A visit to Tippling Rock in Sudbury.

Two cool landmarks within hiking distance of each other: one a big rock from which you can look toward Boston after a short, easy hike; the other, a would-be dam built by Henry Ford (it never worked, hence the name) that is fun to explore. If you visit both locations in one day, you can also get in a good-distance hike through several conservation parcels in Sudbury, and see a smallpox burial ground along the way.
