Lookout/Views

Water Source

Gate 50 (The Wall), in Quabbin Reservoir, MA, is a moderate 5.1 mile out-and-back hike that leads to a large rock ledge overlooking the reservoir nicknamed "The Wall" aka Richards Ledges.

This trail starts at the far end of Goodnough Dike Loop Trail and leads out about 2 miles before the trail heads left towards the water. The trail that leads to "The Wall", also known as Richards Ledges, is not well maintained, so prepare for some bushwhacking. Once you get to the wall, you have a great view of Goodnough Dike and the southern end of Quabbin.

If you cannot find the trail that leads to The Wall, you can likely blaze your own through the woods to get to it. It's recommended to track your trail while doing this so you don't get lost. For free tracking apps, check out our How To Track Trails page.
