Doane Rock is a glacial rock located in Eastham, MA in Cape Cod National Seashore. It is the largest exposed boulder on Cape Cod. It stands 18 feet high and extends below the ground an estimated 12 feet.
This boulder is named after Deacon John Doane, one of Eastham’s original settlers. The rock was left by the glaciers (18,000-12,000 years ago) between the Salt Pond Visitors Center and Coast Guard Beach.
There are also lots of great picnic tables to enjoy that delicious outdoor lunch! This is one of my favorite picnic locations on Cape Cod, right next to Doane Rock.
