Various ranger programs start at this site including the Kayak of the Salt Pond activity. Pre registration is needed for this so make sure you check out the newspaper schedule of events the National Seashore publishes (you can also see this online).

If you've arrived in the area for the first time, check out the Visitor Center. It's free. Lots of basic information about Cape Cod. Nice gift shop.

This is a great place to stop by to get more information about visiting the Cape Cod National Seashore. The staff are very friendly and provide lots of advice for good trails, and provide maps. There are some nice hikes on the site too - lots to explore! There is also some educational programming, and a lovely gift shop.
