Rock Climbing in Pawtuckaway

rockclimberConcord Monitor:

The forest, part of Pawtuckaway State Park bordering Deerfield and Nottingham, is a glacially unique field where large boulders were deposited at the end of the Ice Age.

On any given day, small children and rock climbers reign among the stones, their shouts of excitement sometimes indistinguishable. Women picnic atop the miniature mountains, and family dogs crisscross the landscape, taking in the show.

One thing. The story suggests that there's a $3 charge to get into the boulders area. No. That part of the park is no charge. The developed beach/picnicking/camping part has an admission charge.
