A unique natural landmark, Purgatory Chasm runs for a quarter of a mile between granite walls rising as high as 70 feet. Popular with picnickers and rock-climbers alike, the Chasm is believed to have its origin in the sudden release of dammed-up glacial meltwater near the end of the last Ice Age, approximately 14,000 years ago. Trails lead to a wide variety of rock formations, with such romantic names as The Corn Crib, The Coffin, The Pulpit, Lovers' Leap and Fat Man's Misery

Recently did this trail ! The chasm had a lot of ice but we managed to do it . Beautiful and well maintained trail !

Awesome trail, it is a little hard for younger kids. I've been 3-4 times I love it every time because it is so unique.

So much fun with kids and adults! You should be physically fit, as you’re climbing through rocks and boulders.

Use to frequent this trail when I was working in Uxbridge MA

Great little loop with kids. The chasm is unique, breathtaking and a fun climb. Best in Summer and Fall. In Spring it gets very wet, muddy and buggy. This trail is best as an add on after one of the longer trails because it is so short. There are also caves to explore.

Defiantly one for your bucket list!

Fun hike

I'm an experienced hiker and was looking for a quick, moderate hike and from reviews online this looked good. I was thoroughly disappointed with this hike. It was a walk with no reward of a view and was way too crowded. I would not recommend this "hike" to anyone.

love this place. They have something for everyone, all levels.

Lots of fun. The climb was great. A wonderful time. We explored a little off trail, found some nice places.

Loved it!

Lots of fun to scramble around the rocks in the chasm. Super crowded in the summer though.
