Hills of Central Massachusetts Professional Review and Guide

"Slowly the quiet villages and the sprawling forests encircling Quabbin Reservoir are being discovered, yet the area still retains its charm. Back roads pass through orchards and wildlife reservations and over crystal-clear trout streams. There are no true mountains here, but plenty of easily accessible hilltops that afford panoramic views. And autumn is celebrated in country fashion in a number of towns with fall fairs, pumpkin contests and craft sales. Major cities such as Springfield, Hartford and Boston are all only an hour or two away.

Our route is a circular one, starting at the lower end of Quabbin Reservoir and looping around the region in a clockwise direction. A good way to start the trip is to get a look at the reservoir that helps make this area so special. Thousands of acres of forest have been left in their natural state to protect the watershed that gives much of Massachusetts its drinking water. Quabbin itself is huge; over 38 square miles of water surface and 119 miles of shoreline."
