Great roads for biking and great trails for hiking. The dikes are awesome and the history of the construction of the reservoir and the displacement of the 4 colonial era towns is good stuff. Check out the Visitor Center.

The views are beautiful. Loaded with ticks though and overgrown in many areas, so unavoidable. My daughter and I picked off about 50 deer ticks between the both of us by the time we were done. The 6.1 mile trail is actually 7.1 miles, unless we messed up somehow. And the trail opens up about a quarter of the way through to a parking lot at the tower(which we climbed, so that's where that extra distance came in

Nice shade along the way so made for a good run. The trail was a bit overgrown in spots but nothing that bad. I went during the week so no traffic on the trail. I enjoyed the views at the observation tower as well.

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.

Not a trail, it's basically a path that you walk on

absolutely beautiful location. I didn't even know this trail was here because you have to go through a gate on the right. somewhat difficult. I was out of breath on the way back up the mountain for sure. but great workout. awesome views of wildlife and stream. we go every year

the quabbin reservoir is by far one of the most gorgeous places you will ever see. As you walk through her trails you may encounter old celler holes from the old town and sometimes even old farm equipment. Keep.an eye out for moose and eagle! A solid day long outing.
