A beautiful description of Doane Falls is found on The Trustees of Reservations’ website. This organization searches out Massachusetts properties of exceptional scenic, historic, and ecological value and preserves them for public use and enjoyment.

The Trustees of Reservations describes what makes Doane’s Falls a special place:

“We think it’s the pastoral quality of a reservation that showcases a quiet country stream as it turns turbulent. The waterfalls on Lawrence Brook just before it enters Tully Lake indeed grab one’s attention, both visually and audibly.

“Happy to share the picture.”

Thanks, Dana!
