The Gate 11 Trail at Quabbin Reservoir in Pelham, Massachusetts is a moderate 4.4 mile out-and-back hike down to the shores of Quabbin and back. The trail starts at the intersection of Route 202 and Amherst Road in Pelham and runs along Pelham Hollow Road all the way down to the water. Parking can be found directly on Route 202 next to the gate as well.

The trail heads downhill gradually for about 1.8 miles before turning into the 11-3 trail. You'll pass Dana Road and another closed down road that's now only used for maintenance vehicles and hiking - labeled 11-1 and 11-2. These old roads once used to connect the old towns that now lie underwater in Quabbin.

Once you pass the 11-3 sign, you'll cross a small bridge with a 10-foot wide creek below you. Continue following the trail uphill and then the immediate right-hand turn at the top of the hill. Follow this last segment all the way until you reach the shores of Quabbin.
