Runner Notes

The trail consists primarily of a dirt road and a short stretch is paved. Very easy to walk without special hiking equipment.

Description

This loop trail is less than one mile around the Vesper Hill Children's Chapel in Rockport. At the end of the trail is the Chapel that is open year round.

Between Rockport's busy harbor and the fields of Aldermere Farms sits Vesper Hill Children's Chapel. Vesper Hill Children's Chapel is a non-denominational outdoor chapel. The chapel can seat 50 people and is a perfect location for special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, and memorials. But even in the absence of a big event, the Chapel is a great place to relax, to think, to meditate or pray, and to paint or draw, and it is open to the public for all of these things.

Part of the stone foundation from the Tamarack has been incorporated into the gardens. Visitors enjoy a formal garden that features annuals and perennials, herbs, and a variety of trees. A spacious lawn provides great spots for picnicking.
