Join us for a "short hike" to the top of Red Rocks on Tuesday, April 23!

This hike will follow the white-blazed trail (maintained by CATS volunteers) from the kiosk near Haskell Pond (off Forest Ln. ) to the granite ledge at the top of Red Rocks, where we will take in expansive, panoramic views over the treetops to the ocean.  The route will be out-and-back along the white trail, with a total distance of approximately 2.25 miles.

The terrain is moderate along most of the path, with intermittent rocks and roots, and a short section of steeper ascent along the trail to the top of Red Rocks.  

Allow approximately an hour and a half, with time to take in the views!

Please note that dogs will not be allowed on this hike due to the steep granite ledge at the top of Red Rocks.

Meeting spot:

We will meet at the CATS kiosk at the entrance to Haskell Pond off of Forest Ln. in Gloucester.

Please plan to arrive by 9:45 for check-in.  The hike will depart promptly at 10 am.
