In the outskirts of Worcester, this area was a great surprise. Ample parking, with a well marked trail system, this hike very nice. There are loops, and distance can be altered to preference. There are areas of elevation, stepping over/on rocks, and wet but not...More

great spot to hike, not over populated so you really feel your out in nature! Well kept and marked! Way up in back is an old dump found a couple of really old cool bottles! The waterfall is so nice!

We stopped here after kayaking and spent three hours there. Take a picture of the map and park on cataract street. Trails are a little muddy but that's what makes it fun. Enjoy. Hardly any bugs

It was a really tough day for me when my husband "dragged" me out into nature to help me feel better. It worked. It was late summer, so sadly the falls were dry, but even so, the hike was beautiful. It was pretty buggy, though,...More
