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.

Beautiful Saturday & Mud

This morning we are headed out to the East Side Trail to do some spring maintenace, realignment work, and cleanup after the ALB logging job.
We will be out at the parking area across from Worcester Tech and next to the skateboard park at 9:00 a.m. and then will head north on the white blazed Ghost Trail (old East Side Trail's Ghost). Come join us!

The weather will be nice, but stay on the trail treadway EVEN IF THERE IS A PUDDLE OR MUD!
Walking the edges and the perimeter is bad for the trail, bad for erosion, and bad for the forest habitat.
Embrace the trail, embrace the mud!

Ted reported in again last night, and is about to hit a trail town for resupply. We may get some more photos from the AT!
