Gate 3A at Quabbin Reservoir in Belchertown, Massachusetts is an easy 1.6 mile out-and-back hike down to Quabbin from the end of Warner St.
The trail starts off flat and then heads downhill along a gradual slope towards the water. Around mile 0.55 you'll hit a fork in the trail - stay right. Directly after the first fork, there will be a 2nd fork in the trail - stay left at this fork and you'll hit the water after about 0.1 miles.
From the shores of Quabbin you can see the Winsor Dam Trail to the southeast along with western views of the reservoir.
Parking for this gate can be found at the dead end of Warner St - do not park in front of the gate.
Dogs are not allowed on any trails at Quabbin.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I 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! ✌
