Ample parking on Pegan Lane in Natick at trailhead. Start up trail then go right toward Mumford Forest (across dirt road then into field near farm). Stay to right to do the "Mumford Loop" which ends at the Charles River Link Trail. Go left then a quick right up to Lewis Hill which brings you back to the Dover side of Pegan Lane. Very nice views from the top of Lewis Hill. Follow road downhill looking for trailhead on the left. Follow this trail up to the summit of Pegan Hill (410') which is about 50' off trail to the left and marked with a USGS marker. Continue on trail down to parking lot.

Nice little trail. Map is inaccurate, it marks the trail going over paved road on the southern portion.

Great trail run today over through the Mumford property where I spooked about a dozen wild turkeys. They have a cozy little spot in the Mumford forest there near the fruit farm. I continued up to Lewis Hill where the views were awesome given the nice clear, sunny day. I then ran down the road and caught the trail back up and around and over Pegan Hill back to the parking lot. This is a really nice property owned and managed by the Trustees of Reservations.
