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

Great hiking trail but a lot of mosquitoes. My fiancée and I walked this short hiking trail after visiting Marconi station. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area. The path is very well maintained.

This walk would be best with a couple of kids, over 5, under 12. Has a bit of a swamp-like spooky feel, and isn't too difficult. A very pretty walk especially if you are interested in plants, as there are many interesting trees, mosses, and vegetation.

This walk is in the National Seashore and a good part of the hike is right through a cedar swamp! There a wooden walkway that goes through the swamp and its full of green moss and cedar trees. Feels very mysterious and kids love it!

Take 30-40 minutes and enjoy the trees, brush, occasional mushrooms and scampering critters on the swamp trail. It's well-maintained with boardwalking all around the more swampy areas. The trail is located in the Marconi Beach area.

This is a relatively easy walk that first goes through an oak and pine forest. Later on you enter the Atlantic white cedar swamp and at this point the trail becomes a board walk. This section is particularly nice and very dark. The forest floor is an undulating carpet of mosses. There is a brochure at the visitor center that... More
