Round Hill (38.6 acres) provides maximum reward for minimum effort. At an elevation of 227 feet, Round Hill rises only about 100 feet above the surrounding terrain but the view from the top stretches for miles, taking in river, meadows and rolling terrain, especially in winter.

While you can reach the top of Round Hill in 2-3 minutes by the most direct path, take another 20 minutes to swing through wetland and forest before climbing the north side of the hill toward the fine view from the top. A half-hour extension onto the adjacent Weir Hill refuge's nature trail loop adds an enlightening tour of glacial features and a spectacular view of the Sudbury River. The main hike is easy except for a few minutes' moderately steep climb to the top of the hill. The Weir Hill extension is similarly easy except for the moderately steep climb to the top of the glacial kame plain.
