“A great beginner to intermediate trail around Beautiful Tully Lake in Royalston, MA.”— Elizabeth Day
You'll continue on this path and be sure to follow the yellow blazes and hiker symbol signs as there is a fork in the trail where straight ahead it turns into a jeep road and staying to the right is the trail. Stay right you'll come through a lot of singletracks and cross a couple streams and eventually come out to a bridge where you'll see a road. Stay right, following the blazes as you'll head back into the woods and be right by the edge of the lake again.
You'll wind through the woods until you come to the Tully Campground where there are full restrooms to the right if needed; otherwise, you'll follow a path to the parking lot and hike out to the road and turn right onto the road which is Diane Hill Rd. You'll hike along the road for about 1/4 mile, and you'll find the entrance on the right side of the road where you can pick up the path again. This is your steepest climb as you climb up along Doane's Falls stop a moment or two and check out the gorgeous falls before continuing up the ascent to the top where you'll come out to the road again (Athol Rd).
Turn right onto the road and hike up the road until you find another entrance via yellow blazes and enter on the right side. This is where you'll start a descent. It will continue to wind around the lake singletrack where you'll come out on a jeep road slightly paved and the disc golf course. Head straight back into the woods where you'll come out to another road; turn right toward the lake then hike around to the left where you'll be at the bottom of the Dam.
You'll hike up the hill (this is hole 1 of the disc golf course) and you'll turn right onto the road and hike toward the entrance of the recreation area and parking area. This road is the Dam so take in the beautiful view of Tully Lake on your right where you'll turn right into the parking lot and make your way to the parking lot!
