Capped off our visit to Provincetown with a walk around this area. Being early November there was every colour in evidence from the trees which contrasted nicely with the sand dunes.

The trail through Beech Forest is well maintained. Many people use this for running, biking and hiking. It takes you through woods and well as the dunes of the Cape. Very relaxing. Stop at the Visitors Center for a great view of the coastline.

Pleasant, short trail since our day visit was obscured by rain on the sand dunes. It's an easy walk with most of it quite level.

Provincetown is a little bit of heaven: great (expensive) restaurants, excellent shows and wonderful art galleries. However, every once in a while one needs to escape Commercial Street and the beautiful National Seashore Beaches. Beech Forest is a perfect place to return to nature. The...More
