Profile Rock, a 50-foot outcropping, shows a profile of what the Wampanoags believe resembles Chief Massasoit. You can climb to the top and watch the sunset.
Freetown State Forest is located in south-east Massachusetts.[Kel, 01/12/2010]
Very high but climbable rock located in Freetown State Forest. Profile is a bit hard to find, and area is also dangerous at night. Scene of numerous murders and also supposedly the gathering site of satanic cults. Located at the tip of the Bridgewater triangle - an area locally known for unexplained urban myths etc. profile rock definitely does not get the attention it deserves. Said to be the face of Wampanoag Chief, Massasoit.[Danielle, 03/24/2009]
