Go For A Hike

Feed your body, mind and soul simply by putting one-foot in front of the other and exploring one of Greater Cape Ann’s many scenic trails. If you’re in Rockport, pack your knapsack and head on over to Halibut State Park. Essex Features the Millstone Hill Conservation Area, Cox Reservation and Cogswell’s Grant; Manchester-by-the-Sea, the Agassiz Rock Trail and Coolidge Reservation. Local favorites in Gloucester are Ravenswood Park and Dogtown Common (where Gloucester was originally settled). Ipswich is home to Appleton Farms, Willowdale State Forest and Strawberry Hill. These trails all offer beautiful vistas, trails for all abilities and ample opportunities to get away from it all and appreciate the Greater Cape Ann region’s natural beauty.
