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

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

This is the unofficial dog park of Worcester. As a dog owner, I'm fine with that but I'm not sure everyone is. Beyond that I will say that this is a great place for an interesting walk in the woods. I would recommend a map,...More
