Gate 16 at the Quabbin Reservoir – New Panorama

Gate 16 is off Route 202 in Shutesbury, MA.  The gate itself is pretty nondescript and it’s easy to miss.  There is parking in front of the gate though.  Then a short half mile walk through the forest takes you to a wonderful surprise.  Standing on the shore of the right Reservoir, you’ll have a stunning view in one of the most expansive and yet peaceful settings you’ll ever find.  I feel blessed by the opportunity to experience such grandure, just an hour’s ride west of Worcester.  Have a look….

    As a very young boy, this is where my grandfather(god bless him), taught me how to fish. He, my grandmother would walk down the road and tell me stories along the way. I would run and turn over rocks looking to see salamanders and find pools with frogs and view insects. This was 60 years ago and seeing this picture brings tears to my eyes and a soft heart.

  2. Hello wand welcome,

    I’m so glad you stopped by and had a look. That area is quite beautiful and it sounds like very meaningful to you. What a wonder place to spend time with your Grandparents (and learn to fish!). Thanks.
