Dana Commons is a 7.2 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Petersham, Massachusetts. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking.
Walk or bike through history at Dana Commons. Stone walls, cellar holes. No pets please.
can also reach fishing gate in Hardwick by going straight through Dana common,also allowed to ride bicycles at this gate.going farther through the common area couple of miles on left down another trail is the remains of a starfire f90 jet crash from back in the fifties.
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.
