Map & Directions

IMPORTANT NOTE: This year we are starting at the Irving Gas Station/Dunkin Donuts in Westminster (NOT the Mount Wachusett Visitor Center). We will end at the historic Publick House Inn & Country Lodge in Sturbridge, MA.

Join us at 9:30AM; we will leave promptly at 10:00AM.

Irving Oil, 21 Village Inn Road, Westminster, MA is our meeting spot this year. There are indoor bathrooms, a Dunkin Donuts, picnic tables and, of course, GAS. Please plan to gas up here or before your meet us, as we don't plan to stop for gas during our 60+ mile route.

Departing the meeting spot, we'll gain some new views of Mount Wachusett as we traverse along its base. We'll travel through the quintessential New England town centers of Princeton and Rutland before we are off to frolic around the fields and pastures of New Braintree and Hardwick.

We'll stop at the Hardwick Winery for a unique photo stop and brief bathroom break.

Then we'll ramble through Gilbertville, West Brookfield, and Brookfield backroads and finally to our ultimate destination, Sturbridge.

Lunch will be at the Publick House Historic Inn & Country Lodge, 277 Main Street, Sturbridge, MA, built in 1791. It will be a little different this year, however. We have arranged to have individual tables of 4 rather than seating as a large group. (Note: The town common, located directly across from the Inn, is a nice spot for a picnic lunch for those who would prefer that alternative.)
