We visited here on a beautiful hot sunny day, we decided to walk down the steps and have a wander around. The scenery is stunning and this would be beautiful spot to walk on a bright autumn day or spring day.

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.

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
