Full Year Events Calendar

See the Saugus Community Events Calendar for details and schedules for particular events.

New Years' Day Hike -- January

A brisk walk, followed by a cup of hot chowder to start off the New Year.

Maple Sugarin' at Breakheart -- March

Each year, one of the first signs of spring is the smoke rising from Breakheart's maple sugaring evaporators. Join us in March to learn how to identify maple trees in the winter, how to tap a tree, sap boiling techniques and a reward of some pancakes and syrup around a campfire when your work is done. (call 781-233-0834 for info)

Breakheart's Annual Road Race -- April

A chance for runners to enjoy a professionally timed road race while enjoying the foliage and the challenge of Breakheart's hills! Applications are available at the Visitors' Center.

Spring Cleanup -- May

Come help us give the reservation a clean sweep in May. Bring gloves, we'll supply the tools and lunch!


Enjoy, hiking, biking, jogging, picnicking, fishing and swimming at our lifeguard protected beaches.
