The trail is very flat throughout the hike. It is dog friendly; you can let them off leash once you have gone beyond Hop Brook . There are some slight slopes throughout the the hike. Hop Brook traverses the reservation and sustains a variety of wild life to include muskrats, beaver, great herons, owls, redtail hawks, ducks, snakes and toads. About a half mile into the trail you will discover a vernal pool which in the spring is a habitat for many water animals. The entire area is very photogenic because of the variety of flora and seasonal blooms. The trail head it self has a capacity of about 10 vehicles; once you are on the trail it is very easy to follow with the markings from S.V.T. -the trial is owned and maintained by the Sudbury Valley Trustees .

Directions:

follow route 20 from 495 into Sudbury -- you will see the old Henry Ford Plaza on the right -- take your next left onto Wayside Inn road -- follow this until you come to the Mary Martha Church on your left -- take an immediate left and follow for exactly one half mile to the trail head parking lot
