Blackstone Gorge – Blackstone, MA

image

Blackstone Gorge makes for a short, enjoyable hike across hilly and rocky terrain. Views down into the gorge are scattered throughout the hike. The trail is sort of a loop trail with 2 paths running very close to each other for most of the way. You can take 1 down and the other back, but you might just opt to stick with the one closer to the gorge both ways so that you can admire the Blackstone River.  Young kids who like to do some minor climbing over small rocks will enjoy parts of this one.
