Overview

Come join us for an exploration of Purgatory Chasm in Sutton, MA! Purgatory Chasm is a unique spot, formed by glaciers, and full of nooks and crannies to explore, both in the jumbled rocks in the bottom of the chasm, to the walk along the top of the chasm. Although relatively short in length (about 1-1.5 miles, depending on preferences), we are planning for about 1.5 hours duration. There is also a nice playground and picnic area for a post-hike snack. Hike is not appropriate for children under 5 years old given rock scrambling and unfenced steep areas. Bring a flashlight for cave exploration!
