Kids, unplugged

The Trustees of Reservations in Cape Ann announces a new short loop designed by teens especially for 3-5 year olds and their family.

Ask for a “hike-n-seek”to help you enjoy your hike. Older kids will enjoy “Questing”--rhyming clues, to find a Treasure Box in the Park; or borrow our Discovery Detective Pack for your exploration.
