New Property Trail
The Hill at Lobster Cove is a fabulous new Greenbelt property adjacent to the Mount Adnah cemetery in the Annisquam section of Gloucester. This past summer, we worked with the Gloucester DPW to build a new trail that runs along Leonard Street, offering pedestrians a safe alternative to the street. There is parking for 1-2 vehicles by the town landing sign.
