We will meet at the top of Summit Avenue in Rockport , head through the Rockport Town Forest to Briar Swamp.   We will circle the swamp passing Whales Jaw, and then back up to Summit.

Be preapred to walk at a vigorous 4 mph pace. This route  has some climbing and rocks but a fair amount on the wider heavily-travelled trails.
