Check out the kiosk at the base of the hill for a map, or visit Sudbury Valley Trustees' office for a hard copy at 18 Wolbach Road.

Bonus attractions on this trip are the rare "beltie" cows!

Climb Breakneck hill to find a flowered, open meadow with grass trails throughout and a view that can provide glimpses of Mt Wachusett on a clear day.   Rolling terrain makes for some steep climbs!  Watch the extremely rare belted galloway cows from a neighboring farm graze, but stay clear of the electric fence. Kids and pets need to be monitored here.   Trails also connect to the town forest.

Plan B:

Drive in to Worchester to see the Ecotarium, a unique indoor-outdoor museum.

Where to Eat Nearby:

There are several places to eat at the intersection of Rt 85 and Rt 9.
