On the final day of our vacation, my beau and I decided to take a hike before heading home. We settled on the Beech Forest, which would be suitable for any level hikers, but especially good for those with some mobility issues as the walkways were well maintained and even. We would like to see it again in the full... More

Beech Forrest is a short, easy hike 10 minutes outside of Provincetown. Located right off RT.6, it is a much needed getaway from the crowds of Ptown. The trail loops around a small pond and is filled with birds, squirrels, turtles and beautiful flora. So quiet and peaceful. Easy and fun trail for kids and adults.

The nature trail is an easy walk around a small pond and there's a slightly longer trail if you want to do that. The main attraction is having the birds eat out of your hand. Bring seed with you and be patient and quiet. It really is an amazing thing. I love to listen to them chirp to each other... More

A bird watcher's paradise, spring or fall. Migrating warblers flock here. Though a beautiful, peaceful walk anytime of year. After a walk, enjoy a delicious meal in Provincetown.

We live on the Cape and have not explored the National Seashore properly at all. We spent the night in P-town and decided to explore some of the Park's trails on the way home. This was an easy trail to walk though it was a hot, humid day. The tree cover helped to shade us. We learned so much about... More

Biking trails are very nice. Round trip to beach is a good ride. If you complete all the trails and back to B&B, about 20 miles or so.

Nice bike ride, with the smell of pines. Very Ptown. It really does not take too long. Thats about all I have to say.

We like to ride the bike trail from Herring Cove to Beech Forest then up to the visitors center and back to the cove, like counter clockwise. This can be a busy place so you need to pay attention as some of the corners are sharp and you don't want to stray in to the oncoming lane. Go early in... More

We rented bikes from Gale Force and headed out through Herring Cove Beach and the trails beyond. By the time we got to the top of yet another mammoth hill in the hot sun, we checked the trail map and opted for Beech Forest, hoping there would be some much-needed shade. It was the perfect spot for a sunny, warm... More
