Tetasset Ridge includes the property known as “God’s Acre”, which offers a vast scenic vista across Worcester. To reach the overlook you’ll pass through a corridor of paper birches and mountain laurel. At the base of this steep hill is Deed Rock, where you can read Solomon Parson’s deed of the land to God in 1840. Tetasset Ridge also connects to Fowler Brook Gorge, which features a stream-cut ravine.
