“Eastham Fort Hill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

It is a wonderful place for easy hikes, so, very apt if you are with small children. You can see glacial debris, erratics, large stones carried by glaciers and left in new places, kames and large boulders everywhere. There are many wild flowers and wonderul looking trees. You can also go canoeing. The time you stay there depends on what hikes you want to do , or how long you want to just look at the landscape.

“best scenic view on the whole Cape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

The small parking lot provides the best scenic view on the whole Cape. We go for a least a short visit everytime we're on the Cape. There's also a nice walk thru marsh and woods - but be sure to bring bug spray for that. Nice drive by the Penniman House on the way in. It has a very interesting gate made of 2 whale jaw bones. They're huge!

“Scenic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

My family and I love heading out to Fort Hill. They have these great trails through the woods and wooden walkways through the white cedar swamps that lead to rolling pastures overlooking the marsh and ocean. It is truly lovely.

“Nice views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

I've been coming to The Cape for years and had never visited here. There are beautiful views of the marshes and Nauset Beach dunes, and nice walking trails. Bring your camera!

We walked one of the trails yesterday that looks over the marsh. It was very beautiful, great picture opportunities, but we forgot the bug spray! Bring bug spray!
