I was in Gloucester, to pick up some rims for snow tires, and remembered that long ago, Jim Baker (so real long ago), had suggested Ravenswood Park as a possible O venue.
So I changed into running gear, found a trail map at the parking, and set out. Nice trail, so off through the woods. Lots of rock, of all sizes, gradual ups and downs, but lots of rock,,,, a mini Pawtuckaway was my thought. Very open woods though, no ground veg.
Went off trail out of the ToR land (did I mention this is a Trustees property?) into Gloucester water company land. Contours were vague (and printed white on light green) but at one point I just headed NE, still in the woods and no trails...finally hit a trail (not on the map) then a mapped trail. Moving into the SE area there are more trails, some marshes, and the bit more undergrowth. More like High Rock I thought, but without the low bushes.
Biggest drawback would be parking. The official area fits only about 12 cars.
