Storybook Trail at Wolbach Farm


Ideal for families with young readers, the Storybook Trail at Wolbach Farm in Sudbury consists of a dozen stations along a 3/4-mile path through the woods. Each station contains a few pages of a children's book chosen especially for families with toddlers or young readers.

You can read the story while enjoying a pleasant walk and encouraging your children to explore nature.

Titles have included:

  • The Gruffalo
  • A Seed is Sleepy
  • Over and Under the Snow
  • The Great Kapok Tree
  • The Wish Tree
  • The Curious Garden
  • and then it's spring
  • The VERY Impatient Caterpillar
  • Owl Moon
  • We're Going on a Leaf Hunt

We post a new book every season, so there's always a good reason to return to Wolbach.

The trail, which goes up and over a hill through the woods, can be uneven and muddy (or snowy and icy in winter). Please wear proper footwear, and note that it's best to leave the stroller in the car.

In Fall 2016, two local Girl Scouts--Elizabeth Ostrowski and Caitlin Myron--created the Storybook Trail along the George Lewis Memorial Trail at Wolbach Farm in Sudbury. In December 2020, Boy Scout Conner Goodwin designed, built, and installed new cases for the posts in order to better protect the book pages from the elements.
