We found it beautiful, interesting and enjoyable
Great hike. Very well maintained trails. Beautiful day. Left from gate 40 to Dana center. Then continued to the right out of the center to the waters edge. About 7 miles round trip.
There are multiple trails to explore off of Gate 40 and Dana Center. The old road is well maintained. The Dana Common is amazing.
It's about 1.8 miles from gate 40 to the former town of Dana. DCR maintains the area fairly well.
There are many trails off the town center to explore. An amazing part of Quabbin history.
