Trail Notes

The Gate 35 Trail at Quabbin Reservoir is a 3 mile out-and-back hike that leads from Old N Dana Rd in New Salem, MA, down to Quabbin. The trail is mostly flat and is lightly-trafficked, but can be more crowded on holiday weekends. After the trail reaches the water, it continues running along the east side of the reservoir for quite a while. This is one of the best trails at Quabbin considering the views you get along with the seclusion of the northern side of Quabbin. This trail is a lot less trafficked than most of the popular spots on Quabbin's south side.

Note: The GPS data provided only includes 3 miles out and back for this Quabbin gate.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
