trail paralleles 128 and the NE gas pipeline leading to some climbing areas of varrying flavor and difficulty. Even if you're not up to climb, the walk over the rocks offers nice views of Gloucester and essex. the trail is mostly second class terrain with some 3rd and 4th class stuff for fun. Whether the approch for a climb or a walk in the woods, you cant go wrong in the redrocks area.
The trail starts at the junction of 128 and 133 in Gloucester. park to the left of the mini-strorage and follow the well-troden path into the woods. the trail abuts privat land so PLEASE STAY ON THE TRAIL!! (good LNT practice and will protect access) The main cliffs are straight back next to rt 128. You will pass a large boulder 5 minutes, (stay to the left of the boulder) after another five minutes, look left for a faint trail/drainage ditch. This first trail bill bring you into a scrappy gully with some potential. about 10 minutes past the large Boulder the trail will turn right at a short cliff face. the main face is another three minutes up on the left. the trail travels back into the woods, MTN bikers are frequent back there. As for rock, I got you this far, the rest is up to you. boulders, face climbs, slabs, cracks ect await those who are willing to hunt. Please use caution, tread lightly, and have fun.
128 NB to exit 14 (MA 133). Take a left off the exit, go under 128 and park in the dirt lot on the left befor the mini-storage (small cars use caution, I've bottomed my Corolla out on the curb)
