Description Suggest change

This is a state park littered with boulders and short cliffs. There is great access as the Massachusetts DCR allows climbing in their state parks. There has been lots of recent activity with more new stuff on the way.\

As well as the information here, there is a recent guide by Dana Seaton available through the Gunks+ app.

Getting There Suggest change
