Purgatory chasm

The first of August Leigh, Billy and I went to stroll around Purgatory chasm in Sutton, Massachusetts.

The weather that day was fantastic. The trails are great. Combine the two and you have a great day to walk some beautiful trails.

The trails at Purgatory chasm are short in distance but the boulders and the chasm itself make for some fantastic scenery and, while short, it makes for a great walk around the park. The trails are mostly flat and relatively easy to traverse.

Personally, I had a blast climbing and crawling around the rocks, walking the edges above the chasm and strolling along the stream.

There is about 3.25 miles of trails so on a nice day it may be very crowded but there are nice spots for a picnic so you can get off the trail and just enjoy the surroundings too.
