Hike to Lookout Rock and then dinner at Brian's Restaurant in Uxbridge.

The view from Lookout Rock is good when the trees are bare. We last went here at the end of 2011, so I think it's worth a revisit. The address shown above is at the main  office on the south side of Hartford Ave.  There is a better and safer lot on the north side just east of the office. Playing with my Yahoo Maps, I think 366 E Hartford Ave, Uxbridge, MA will get you there.

Here's a trail map. Jon got us lost last time:

After hiking I was thinking about hitting Brian's in Uxbridge.  The ratings weren't too bad:

I'm going to cap this at 12, but I'll be flexible.  And PLEASE, since we will have reservations, don't be a no-show or a late No-RSVP'er.

 

IMPORTANT!! The times are totally flexible.  If you don't want to spend too much of the day doing this, we can start earlier and end early, or vice versa.

    I was wondering if I could bring my dog Hazel for the hike. She can hang in my car at the restaurant? AND is there room for one more for me to bring a friend?

      I called the DCR. Dogs are ok

    Still dealing with a nagging cough that won't quit. Sorry to not make this hike. Combined with a dinner afterward sounds great. Hope the weather holds out for you.

    • Steve

      Brian's restaurant may not like it, though. Do you have sunglasses and a white cane.

    I Did NOT get us lost last time. There's a reason your name is "Wrong Way" Steve!
    And by the way, that was my first ever Trekking Gourmets event, which you hosted. And now you work for me. So there!
