The Quabbin Nature Walk Trail is a small 0.7 out-and-back hike that starts around the corner from parking at the Goodnough Dike at Quabbin Reservoir.

This is a very easy trail but over grown and not maintained during the summer.

Dogs are not allowed at Quabbin. Parking can be found Old Ware-Enfield Rd at the Goodnough Dike lot.

Lookout Point
As you follow the trail to the northern section of the loop, you'll find signs for a lookout point. To find it, follow the yellow blazes out to a small lookout that sits above the dike.

Parking
Parking can be found along Old Ware-Enfield Rd by the entrance to the Goodnough Dike Trail. Hikers must walk in on the Goodnough Dike Loop Trail for about 0.15 to 0.2-miles to reach this trailhead.

Pets
Dogs are not allowed on any trails at Quabbin.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
