The views are spectacular! Great place to stop and stretch. Dam is over 100 years old and looks great. Stairs to bottom provide for some added exercise.

A beautiful place even more beautiful on a warm sunny fall day! This was an awesome hike, challenging but not to strenuous for most people. A lot of steps up and down but that makes a great total workout and great views to boot.

My wife and I have visited Wachusett Dam many times. We both love this place; with far reaching views, a serene landscape, long walking stretches, Wachusett Dam makes an enjoyable visit!

The dam is only 2 times a year and is a special treat. It is an amazing structure and the scenery around the dam is beautiful, especially in the fall when the leaves change colors. You can walk down the stairs to the lower area...More

I often stop here when on a motorcycle ride. Others stop by car. There as small but ample parking area along the street. You will see many photographers at sunset. For those with exercise in mind there are hundreds of steps down to the base....More

First off, this dam is in Clinton, not West Boylston. The Trip Advisor address takes you to a private residence. I used Google Maps on my Android to find this site. You drive into Clinton Center and then drive down a number of very residential...More

Great place to walk, run, hike or fish. Also a great place to take pictures during sunset or anytime. The small town of Clinton has a few nice quaint eating establishments. The townspeople are very friendly.

Driving back to Worcester from Clinton, we stopped to check out this dam. It was drizzly and overcast, but the view was beautiful. Everything so clean and green. The Wachusett Reservoir was the largest public water supply reservoir in the world when it was completed...More

This dam is a great place to go to hang out. It also seems as though there were many trails at the bottom of the dam which would be great for running. Beware that if you want to see the dam from the bottom there...More
