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 Day Following the Intense Rain

Somehow it is always more beautiful in the forest the sunny morning after a hard overnight rain, and today is simply glorious out there!

Yes, we needed the rain.
Yes, the streams are still low.

But the air is clear, the skies are bright, and the green is simply more intense and that is the greatest thing of all!

Ted was in New York last night.
Now it is one of those funny bits where you bop into NY before going right back into PA, but he is really close to getting into the Northeast once and for all!
In fact family is going to meet him this weekend at Bear Mountain in NY!
Go Ted!


9 a.m.- 12 p.m. we will be tracing, carving, hewing, routing, painting, and otherwise making the trail signs that make Worcester's trail system work!
Come join us!
