maple sugar days at breakheart reservation photoIt's sugarin' time in the Blue Hills! Join Trailside and the Massachusetts DCR as we continue a more than 20-year-old tradition of making maple syrup at Brookwood Farm in the Blue Hills Reservation.

Discover how people learned to get sugar from a tree as you take a walk down 'Maple Lane' to meet people who share the maple story and who help you handle and use sugar making tools.

Smell the wood smoke as you watch clouds of steam rise from bubbling sap cooking into syrup in the sugar house. And get a taste of real maple!

Activities include games for children and a warming bonfire. Skilled artisans will demonstrate traditional, hand-powered crafts. Grab a bite to eat from a food truck, then purchase some locally-produced maple syrup.

This outdoor event features a self-guided tour over flat, level terrain—plan to spend at least 90 minutes completing the tour. Afterwards, enjoy free same-day admission to Trailside Museum!

This program is wheelchair accessible. No dogs, please.
