This Turtle Boy Tour is for the nature lovers – the Cascades on the Worcester/Paxton line. If you like hiking and/or photographing nature, this is for you. Check the maps, pick your trail, and after your hike, get something good to eat.
The Cascades is 156.59 acres consisting of Cascades West, Cascades East, and Cascading Waters. It’s a great place to go for a quick walk in the woods or to take an all-day adventure. As a photographer, I enjoy visiting throughout the year. The Cascades are beautiful in every season and there’s always something interesting to see.
There’s a nicely done trail map and more information about the trails posted on the Greater Worcester Land Trust’s website.
After you’re done with your hike, there are several great places to grab some food all within a very short drive. If you want a full meal, Nancy Chang, Bushel and Peck, Tatnuck, and Nu Kitchen (formerly Nu Cafe) are all good choices. On The Rise Bakery and Cafe are also close if you just want a snack.
