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.

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.

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.

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

Great Hike for all. Easy access and Great trails.

I don't know what trail I actually hiked today.. There are very few markers and any markers along the way are inconsistent. It's easy to get lost there are alot of side trails. The views of the lake were beautiful though!

One of my personal favorites

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

Nice trail that leads to a pretty reservoir. Take your phone so that you can follow the map to stay on the trail. There are many side trails and it’s easy to get lost.

Gone several times for short lunch trips, great moderate hike to go on with friends & family.

Lots of cool boulders with scrambling opportunities. The hike can be customized in length and difficulty.

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 Fall. In Spring/Summer 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 for those with experience. Nice place to take out of state guests for something unique.

Not marked very well, it's easy to get lost. I turned back early because I was fearful of getting lost.

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.

gorgeous hike up and down the chasm and around it, dogs have to be leashed, but no one cares if you unleash
