Back in April we started hiking along the eastern shore of the Quabbin Reservoir at the lookout tower in Belchertown. During four separate Sundays we’ve made it to the northern end at Gate 31 in New Salem! While it was cold and blustery, there was no rain this time. In fact this hike might have been the most scenic section – with tremendous views from Soapstone Mountain and a long stretch running along the water. Here are some photographs to give you a taste of what we saw.
