Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

Vole visit!

We were not quick enough with the camera for a photo, but one of our meadow voles tunneled right under the birdfeeder this morning, and we are catching glimpses of him as his nose comes up to grab some spilled birdseed. If you have open space in your yard, you, too, may have lines in the snow where the voles have tunneled under the snow to get (safe from predators) to and from where they need to be.

It's the good stuff!

We see that we had an early hiker out here already today. While the parking area is not cleared, the trails are full of light, fluffy snow. If you have snowshoes or cross-country skis that have been gathering dust, c'mon out!

The trail sign is up!

You may have noticed a new addition at Cascading Waters. We now have a trail sign right at the end of the Cascades Trail by the parking area.
