Map & Directions

Our day begins with coffee "and" at 9:30AM at the base Wachusett Mountain Visitors' Center (not the ski area and not the top of the Mountain). We leave on our tour at 10:00AM.

  • There is a small entrance fee to drive to the top of the mountain. Please feel free to come a few minutes early if you wish to visit the mountain summit before joining us at the mountain base.

Departing the mountain, we'll travel through several historical town commons of the Wachusett region. We'll have a brief "gas and go" stop about 13 miles into our trip. We'll stop in picturesque Petersham Center for pictures and then head off to lunch at the Gardner Ale House.

Please contact Dan Donovan at dmdonovan1@yahoo.com or 508-340-3579 if you plan to join us, so we can let the restaurant know how many to expect.Tiny Quadrifoglio

Our meeting point is the Visitor's Center at Wachusett Mountain, 345 Mountain Road, Princeton, Mass. (Go to the State Park Entrance, NOT the ski area).

  • Take MA Route 2 to exit 25  for Routes 2A / 140 South toward Westminister/Princeton. NOTE THAT THERE IS NO GAS at this exit. So plan to stop BEFORE this exit to gas up, or wait until our gas stop about 13 miles into our route.
  • Turn right off the ramp onto 140 S / 2A W and continue to follow 140 S for 2.4 Miles
  • Turn right onto Mile Hill Rd/Park Rd which becomes Mile Hill Rd - follow for 1.1 mile
  • Continue onto Mountain Rd. Continue PAST the ski area to the State Mountain Reservation entrance on the right, 0.8 mile
  • Turn LEFT into the Visitor's Center, not RIGHT past the ranger station / toll booth and up the mountain as we've done in the past.
