Gate 50 - The Wall

5.1 Miles Moderate

Quabbin Reservoir
Near Ware, Massachusetts


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.

This trail starts at the end of Goodnough dike and leads about 2 miles before the trail heads left towards the water. The trail that leads to The Wall 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 that part 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.
