On a clear, warm spring day with a bit of a cool breeze, ten members hiked up Sudbury’s historic Nobscot Hill for a 2.5 mile trek up rugged trails to its “Tippling Rock” peak, for a lookout view of the Boston skyline 20+ miles to the east, as well as the Channel 5 TV towers” in Needham, and the Encore Boston Harbor Casino in Everett. Along the trails we found wildflowers, a garter snake, a small waterfall, many cabins, and some 4-foot bridges. The many latrines on the trails came in handy during the 1 and 1/2 hour hike. Also, short uphills, plenty of rocks and tree roots to skirt, a lookout tower, a vernal pool, and a 1796 Small-Pox burial cemetery. 

Afterwards, a lunch of the best sandwiches around was eaten outside under an umbrella at the nearby Coffee Works Sandwich and Coffee Shop. Conversations about TOHG’s historic and sometimes comical stories provided entertainment.
