Explore the Boroughs Loop Trail Part 1: Sawink Farm to Cedar Hill

The Boroughs Loop Trail is a recently opened 33-mile walking route connecting the trail networks of Marlborough, Northborough, Southborough, and Westborough. The BLT links wooded walking trails, bike paths, aqueduct trails, and sidewalks.

This hike is the first of two this fall intended to showcase the Westborough portion of the trail. We will walk from Sawink Farm to the top of Cedar Hill in Northborough to enjoy the view, then loop back to our cars via other trails, totaling about 4 ½ miles on woodland trails with one moderate hill.

Park at the Sawink Farm parking lot at the end of Walker Street (off East Main). If lot is full, park along one side of Walker Street; do not block the road. The grassy and unpaved portions at the end of Walker Street may be used. No reservation needed.

Lake Chauncy

Twilight to Moonlight Walk

Two walks are offered to accommodate different age levels— adults on October 1, families and Scout troops on October 2.

Enjoy the sunset across Lake Chauncy, then take a walk by the light of the full moon to get into the Halloween spirit. We will learn to imitate some owl calls and listen for an answer!

The October 2 walk will also include some fun with flashlights at the end.

Take Fuller Way/Hospital Road off Lyman St. to the old State Hospital land and bear left along the lake shore. Park and meet at the lake edge, at the yellow gate between Hospital land and the Fish and Wildlife land, past the Chauncy Soccer Fields.

Walk will be 1-2 miles on mostly level unpaved trails, with one small hill. Bring a flashlight for emergencies, but we plan to keep them off most of the time so our eyes can adjust to the moonlight.

Sawink Farm

Explore the Boroughs Loop Trail Part 2: Sawink Farm to the Old Aqueduct

The Boroughs Loop Trail is a recently opened 33-mile walking route connecting the trail networks of Marlborough, Northborough, Southborough, and Westborough. The BLT links wooded walking trails, bike paths, aqueduct trails, and sidewalks.

This hike is the second of two this fall intended to showcase the Westborough portion of the trail. We will start from Sawink Farm to walk along the historic aqueduct and river in Southborough, then loop back to our cars via another route, totaling about 3 miles on woodland trails with one moderate hill. The possibility exists to extend the walk to about 5 miles and visit the farm stand at Chestnut Hill Farm if we are making good time all participants agree. Expect some wet spots on the trail.

Park at the Sawink Farm parking lot at the end of Walker Street (off East Main). If lot is full, park along one side of Walker Street; do not block the road. The grassy and unpaved portions at the end of Walker Street may be used. No reservation needed.
