I got to Brush hill in Sherborn at 5:30 am and headed out for a 3 mile run. I couldn't find any info on how to access the hill so I thought I might have to bushwhack through some private property. I was happily surprised to find that a network of Sherborn Town Forest trails took me right to the top. There were no remnants of the tower but there was a building on top housing a cell tower.

Next up was a 20 minute drive to Dover for a visit to Snow hill. I'd been to this tower back in 2008 as well. That time I'd approached from the north. This time I parked on Pine street near the town line. I found a pull-out near the pond due east of the hill. I figured I'd run the road and try to find the tower access road (it is an active tower). I was happy to find a trail right where I parked. It was a short run up to the ridge and would have been a quick run to the tower but I wasn't sure which way to go on the road. I got in 2+ miles exploring the road. The tower also had a tall new fence so no climbing. I checked out "South Snow hill" but found no tower remains at that location.
