Explore the most popular trails in Quabbin Reservoir with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Quabbin Reservoir is one of the largest man-made public water supplies in the United States. Created in the 1930s by the construction of two huge earthen dams, the reservoir is fed by the three branches of the Swift River, and seasonally by the Ware River. Quabbin's water covers 39 square miles, is 18 miles long and has 181 miles of shoreline. When full, Quabbin holds 412 billion gallons of water. The New Salem and Enfield lookouts offer magnificent views of the reservoir. In order to flood the vast area of the Swift River Valley in the 1930s, the entire population of four towns had to be relocated. Hundreds of homes, businesses, a state highway, a railroad line, and 34 cemeteries were also moved or dismantled. Over 6,000 graves were relocated from the Valley to Quabbin Park cemetery.

Quabbin es visible a través de los árboles, pero no tiene vista abierta hasta el final en el dique. ¡TENGA CUIDADO DE LAS TICKS! Una caminata en este sendero el 29/7/2018 resultó en más de una docena de garrapatas: revise su ropa y zapatos periódicamente si planea completar esta ruta.
