This lovely, easy walk is like walking through a fairy tale place; green hummocks, little pools of water, and White Cedars. Located in Cape Cod National Park, just go there. Wear sneakers - some of the trail is on a board walk. you can drive to the trail head or ride a bike from the rail trail. Easy for little... More

I've lived on the Cape my whole life and never walked this trail until today! The boardwalk portion of the trail winds through a cedar tree grove and is really cool. My kids loved it, it was fun and a little spooky. The trail is flat and just a little over a mile, so perfect for the whole family. A... More

In all honesty, with the abundance of hiking trails and nature in Cape Cod, I was expecting a bit more. The trail starts out just as a regular path in the woods, then it goes into the swamp area where there are the raised wooden paths and this part takes about 10 minutes to walk, but the swamp itself is...

All in all trail was fun and easy. Unique with the boardwalk that goes through the swamp. 1 mile hike and very worth the time. Would not want to go on a hot humid day - the mosquitoes get insane. Today's weather was cool and breezy so it was great!

Seriously mystical and mysterious with walking trails, feels untouched by humans nearby. Fun to go in the evening and walk as night falls. Bring a flashlight and bug repellent.

Recommend taking this walk in the AM as it was still cool. Beautiful walk that is not strenuous and nice for a family activity. Beautiful view of the beach at beginning/end of walk.

A pleasant easy walk to get away from the beach crowds. Be sure to have bug spray and cover up. There can be a lot of mosquitos.

This gem was deserted on a nice day. Easy, informational walk through the woods and swamp and a nice break from the beaches. Allow 45 mins to enjoy area.

We enjoyed walking on the trails through the swamp. The trails are kept up nice. I would bring bug spray.

This is a unique experience. Who would expect to walk approximately 100 yards from the parking lot at the top of the hot summer dunes on the Atlantic shore of Cape Cod and find a cool swamp traversed by a trail that is handicapped accessible [some inclines may be difficult] and very well marked. There is no fee and parking... More
