Hemlock Gorge Reservation

Hemlock Gorge Reservation Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike explores the Charles River where it spills through a gorge cut by a glacier 10,000 years ago. After surveying the gorge from within a hemlock forest, the trail circles a small island in the river and then crosses the magnificent Echo Bridge.

The trail is mostly hard-packed dirt with a few areas of flat rock. There are a couple of short hills, but for the most part this is a gentle hike suitable for anyone."
