Purgatory Chasm

A brush with the devil can clear your mind...
And strengthen your spine...

{Whispers in the Dark -- Mumford and Sons}

Purgatory Chasm has been on my "MA Bucket List" for ages and I finally got out there and am already planning a return trip!

This amazing hiking spot, in Central Mass, is the remains of a glacial formation that melted away around 14,000 years ago. The main trail is a half mile out and back along huge rocks - it was my dream hike...scurrying up and down rocks taking in the insanely epic views of the cliff faces.

I did two loops, out through the chasm, back on top of the cliff face, back out on the opposite face, then back to the start through the chasm. What a workout. It was just amazing. I highly recommend to anyone in the MA area!
