Description

Dogtown Park's 3600 acres reside within the borders of Gloucester and Rockport. It has an interesting history since its founding in 1642. The original settlements later became abandoned, opening the park to witches, vegabonds, and feral dogs. During the Great Depression, Roger Babson, a millionaire and founder of Babson College, commissioned unemployed stonecutters to carve inspirational inscriptions into dozens of boulders throughout the park.Today, hikers and mountain bikers use it on a regular basis. The park has numerous glacial erratics that await the adventurous boulderer willing to leave the trails and explore.
