Okay, so I'm still a beginner hiker...this was hard! I really enjoyed myself, don't get me wrong, but yikes! There's a lot of climbing boulders, up and down. Looks easier for kids and people in great shape...but great exercise!

Excellent hike with great views of the Quabbin and surrounding areas.

So much fun!

Beautiful hike and great for kids and families.

Had my 2 year old on my kelty backpack during the hike. It was gorgeous but I wouldn't recommend doing it since the rocks you had to go over were quick large.

trail was clean and well maintained other than others not cleaning up after their dogs!!! REALLY PEOPLE!!!!
Trail was a moderate hike lots of rough areas to trip on. Took our 2 Irish wolfhound crosses with us and they were very tired after yellow trail with some side drifting views. I will definitely hike there with them again.

Fun hike through the chasm. The rest of the trails were adaquete. It was a bummer to pay $10 for parking though since all trails were kind of short. But as far as $10 go, at least it goes to a deserving place. It’s easy to swerve in and out of the yellow and blue trails and other unmarked trails if you choose. It’s all pretty flat except the chasm. I drove an hour and a half, if you live farther maybe choose another, closer trail.

Challenging yet not too much so. The day I went it was pretty muddy and it was slippery in quite a few places. Overall had a great time.

This trail was a challenge but I loved it! Took my best friend with me and we had so much fun! I just love climbing rocks and walking in trails!

This trail by far is the best hiking trail in the Quabbin. The best part of the trail is the observation tower on Quabbin Hill. I like to bring food to picnic on that hill and to rest and really soak in the experience from there. It's a great way to spend a day in the Quabbin.

Fun area to explore with lots of rampart caves and ledges. The highlighted loop goes around the Chasm, but it’s definitely worth checking it out during your trip. We spent about a half hour checking out the caves, then did a little hiking. The trails in the area are very well marked and maintained. My one warning would be to avoid coming on weekends since it gets very crowded.

Nice place to hike and exercise. Very scenic.

Incredibly crowded late on a Sunday morning in July, and the summit is VERY crowded with noisy families due to a parking area near the top. Views are nice but not spectacular, obscured by towers and tourists. There’s a lot of up and down, a very indirect way to the top (but a nice workout with a few overlooks). I took the left fork at the beginning of this loop so I summited near the end of this hike... I think I would have been too annoyed with the circuitous route to finish had I gone the other way!

This is a great time to spend your day:)
The trails can be from easy to moderately difficult or you can make it a little of everything. We love coming here.

awesome trail been going for 13years, I walk with my dogs and ride my bike

always a pleasure. great look out rock

I love this place. So peaceful and the best hiking experience i have had.

Moderate woodland trails with beautiful views overlooking the chasm. Inside, there are a lot of great bouldering areas to climb over and through.

great place. always impressed by the chasm. Wildlife is super cool. kick over a rotted log and you may find a giant millipede

This is my favorite type of hike. Rocky scramble, huge boulders and trees. Started counterclockwise on charleys loop(yellow), followed forest road trail (orange and blue) and chasm trail (blue). Chasm trail was the best with huge rocks to climb in under on and through. there's a trail but so many neat options on it! First trails were boring but the chasm more than made up for it! FYI - parking fee $5 for MA resident, $10 out of state.

This was one of the coolest places we have ever been to. Highly recommend it.

This complex of trails has several nice views from elevated points looking east. The trails here are closer to hiking trails than ealking paths so be prepared. There are some elevation changes but minor. My last trip was to explore the Vernal Pool trail. Enjoyed walking this trail, very relaxing with some nice rock outcroppings to pass through. Pisgah does not get the large amount of traffic that nearby locations do. Was at this location 4 hours and saw one dog walker and one very friendly mountainbiker. Lots of woodpeckers here if birds as are your thing.

Fun walk with my 5 year old, park area is clean and allows for picnics.

One of my personal favorites

One of my favorite quick trails, perfect if your looking for something short and beautiful. The rock house it a nice spot to take a breather.

Went here for a birthday party, great place for a picnic and an easy hike with awesome rocks.
