Explore On Your Own

The Trustees of Reservations invite you to get out and explore Massachusetts. Go relax on the beach, bike through the woods, have a picnic in the park, or run the kids around until they’re exhausted.

Leaf-Peeping Destinations
Foliage season draws visitors and locals alike to New England’s most spectacular natural settings – including Trustees properties throughout Massachusetts.
World's End Views that are Worth the Hike
Standing atop a hill and taking in a wide-open vista can be a breathtaking experience. It also gives us a landscape-level impression of place. Sometimes, you have to work a little hard to get there, though. We promise, these views are worth the trek.

Tracing History
In many ways, the history of Massachusetts flows through Trustees properties. Visit these reservations, each with its own connection to evolution of the Commonwealth. Then add your own favorite portals to our collective past!

Royalston Falls

Gorgeous Gorges
Waterfalls are the sensory delights of the natural world: We marvel at their dramatic plunges, hear them roar and hiss, sometimes even feel their cooling mist. You’ll experience waterfalls in all their varied wonder at more than a half-dozen Trustees properties in north-central and western Massachusetts.
