Beautiful land and setting , unfortunately run by an organization that is not tuned into what everyone wants and caters to a small group of some time hikers rather than people that want to use the land and trails on a regular basis. The people that head up this organization should rethink land use and recreation for all .

Worcester has a great trail system that can being you from one side of Worcester to the other. The cascades are a nice hilly trail that gives a taste of the wilderness a few minutes from the center of Worcester. The trail is well marked, and there are some interesting sights along the way. Great place for kids with a... More

Nothing more than a trickle but we hiked all the way to the top hoping to see some water falling. it was not worth the trip. I guess we need more rain to see the cascading of it.

But the cascade is not on Cascade Street (the map is wrong). You have to go up one more street to Cataract Street. Go down just... More

Great place to get away without leaving Worceter. One of my favorite places to bring the dog that is close by. Many trails which lead into Boyton park. Only con: trails tend to hold water/mud longer than usual after rain fall. If your dog doesn't play well with others this is NOT the place for you. Never have been up... More
