If you’re an avid Massachusetts hiker, you’ve probably been to Purgatory Chasm State Park. This beautiful reservation is a unique national landmark, and within it is a short but sweet trail called Charley’s Loop Trail. This area dates back to the Ice Age, and legend has it that glaciers left behind some of these beautiful rock formations that you’ll find throughout the trail. While this hike won’t take too much out of you, it’ll take you through some of the most interesting, ancient rock formations in our state. Head over to Sutton to find Charley’s Loop Trail, an incredible trail within Purgatory Chasm State Reservation.
