Start at the harbor edge of this 600-acre glacial moraine and head north through fields of boulders dropped by the glaciers as they retreated at the end of the last ice age. You’ll pass by ocean views over Gloucester Harbor before heading west and dropping through wooded flatlands. Reach the Great Magnolia Swamp and cross a series of boardwalks to return on a broad carriage path to your car.
