Greetings. You have accessed an Ecological Trail Guide to Dogtown Common in Massachusetts (one of the United States of America). In it you will find general information about this natural area on Cape Ann and a step-by-step guide to some walking trails there. If you plan to visit Dogtown Common I hope you will find the Guide a useful tool in learning about its natural history. If you live in Berlin, Katmandu or Kazakstan and don't ever plan to visit the United States much less Cape Ann, you may find the Guide an amusing way to spend an hour. The author is solely responsible for the web site and material presented on it; he welcomes authoritative corrections, exclamations of approval and declarations of horror. The site is in no way sponsored, supported or approved by the Dogtown Advisory Committee or the Towns of Gloucester or Rockport, Massachusetts.
