A quiet oak forest is hidden close to the centre of Sudbury.
This tranquil glade, just a stone's throw from the Blueberry hill Loop, can be accessed from three separate entrances in the Minnow lake area: off the Lonsdale pedestrian/cyclist pathway; at the base of the hill behind Minnow Lake Place on Bancroft Drive; and at the very end of Hillside Avenue.
Hikers will discover that the climb is a bird lover's paradise with sparrows, robins, woodpeckers, and chickadees in great numbers.
