You'll get a great workout here on bike, roller blade, or by foot. There are very steep hills and at the highest points you will be treated to a panoramic view of the ocean and surrounding beaches. It's magical and it smells of pine and all things good. Fresh air and surrounded by natures beauty. Don't miss it.

The forest was very unexpected being so close to the sea. The bike trails were great and offered several challenges. The forest was so quiet and not too crowded for high season.

This is the quieter trail with fewer walkers and kids. Highly recommended. The views are quite different and a nice change of pace from the other trails through the seashore.

If you locate this trail you will see a tree at the beginning. This is where, if you are patient, you can stand with a hand full of bird seed and the chickadees and titmice will come and eat right out of your hand. There is no other place like this! Young and old alike love this.

I've been going here since I was a child. The trails are lovely. We had the strangest experience once when we heard a strange bird squawking--even my father who is a world-class birder didn't know what it was--and when we finally saw the bird--it was a green parrot! We later heard from a local it had made it 3 years... More

This is a lovley hiking trial on Race Point RD. The trail Head is a This is a great nature trail where birds love to be fed. I have been able to get some great photographs. The entire trial winds around a midsized pond surrounded by scrub pine and shrubs. The perfect way to start an early day.

Treat yourself to a lovely bike ride away from the crowds downtown and to a glimpse of what the Cape used to look like many, many years ago. Couple of words of warning: wear insect repellent as the mosquitoes can be bad depending on location and time of year. Greenheads (horse flies) in July can be annoying but only are... More

This was a great little hike. I appreciate that the NPS has boardwalks in the swampy parts of the trails on the Cape. Don't do what I did. Or forgot as the case may be. This sandy trail winds around a lily pad covered swamp. This means bugs. Lot and lots of bugs. Put on some sting bug repellent. Extra... More
