Family Fall Foliage Hike - Saturday, October 22nd

Calling all families! Fall Foliage is here, let's go take a look!

Join us for a family-friendly, short hike to the Lookout Tower on Mt. Sugarloaf near Sunderland, MA.

The sun will be warm and the trees in foliage color as we hike about 2 miles round-trip, to the Lookout Tower and back. This is an easy, family-friendly hike. This is also the last day that the tower is open for the year. And restrooms... oh, what a relief! After the hike, those who choose can head over to nearby Mike’s Maze for more fun or snacks!
