Shawme - Crowell State Forest and Sandwich Village Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"You can pick up a lot of colonial history and local lore on this trip from a popular state forest and camping area to Sandwich’s quaint village and back. Even the name of the park—Shawme-Crowell—represents specific historical eras in this part of Cape Cod. The first European settlers drifted down from the Plymouth Colony shortly after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in 1621.

They explored this northwest corner of the Cape the local indigenous people called “Shawme”—and renamed it Sandwich, in honor of the town in England. Sandwich, nee Shawme, is Cape Cod’s oldest town. Crowell was the name of a renowned twentieth-century forester who made his reputation defending and promoting these open spaces."
