This is the welcome page for the mailing list for the Cape Ann Sunday morning hiking group, led for many years by Ted Tarr.

We meet most Sundays at 9:45 am at the Whistle Stop Mall on Route 127 in Rockport, and carpool to hiking destinations all over Cape Ann, departing when the commuter rail train leaves the adjacent MBTA station at 10 am.

Our hikes are generally 2 to 3 hours in duration, 3 to 4 miles in length. We hike all over the island's extensive trail system -- Dogtown, the Lanesville and Pigeon Cove quarry lands, the Rockport South Woods -- and off-island destinations around Cape Ann as well.

The mailing list is for announcement of the upcoming week's hike, and questions/discussion/planning of future hikes.  Traffic is low, generally a couple of messages per week.  Please subscribe if you're interested in joining us on the trails!

The original group does not permit dogs on the hikes, but we have a second, dog-friendly group.
The dog-friendly group doesn't have a set schedule the way the Sunday morning group does; instead, if you and your dog would like company on a walk or a hike, post to the dog-friendly mailing list to get a group of (human and canine) companions together to join you!

Here's a photo of a group of us who got together recently for a dog-friendly hike from the Gee Ave. entrance to the Goose Cove Reservoir to Whale's Jaw -- there via the JerryMannder trail (blazed in the 20th century), and back via the Common Road (which dates to the 17th century).
