Hike the Purgatory Chasm Trail
Massachusetts › Purgatory Chasm
Added by The Outbound Collective
Purgatory Chasm is as geologically intriguing as it sounds--a shady quarter mile of rift between tall granite walls attracts hikers and climbers alike.
For this 1-mile hike, you can park at the Purgatory Chasm Visitor Center. From there hit the trail and explore the unusual gap between the tall granite walls, which might be adorned with climbers. Great for all ages and dogs are welcome too. Trail is open March-November.
