Great spot to stop and walk

I love this area. it is so beautiful and has lots of trails! We spotted a lot of Lady Slippers, which were cool. Watch out for the mosquitoes! And watch the Canadian Geese.

I took a stroll for the first time through the Beech Forest Trail and was fortunate enough to come on a day when there were no bicyclists on the trail (they tend to think they have the right of way in Ptown and will run you down if you aren't quick enough). Contrary to the photo shown here, the trail... More

Definitely take a stroll through the trees and hear the hundreds of birds singing. There are beautiful vistas and hidden lakes along the way

This was our favorite hike during our very short visit to the area. The chickadees came very close in one area of the trail. There are names in front of some of the main trees. The hike was enjoyable because of the variety of trees and plants making up the forest. The one thing that can be done to improve... More

This was the best hike of the cape, but be sure you actually visit the beech grove! You can miss it if you only do the loop around the lake. The beech grove also has plants called "beech drops" associated with it. These plants are root parasites of the beech tree, and you'll probably miss them if you aren't looking... More

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.

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.
