“All Season”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We typically travel to the Cape during the warmer weather like most people, but we recently went to the Cape for a long weekend. With not much to do on the Cape in the winter, we searched for things to do with the kids and found some cool things happen here. One of the events was the Owl Prowl. Kids sat around and participated in an interactive Owl demo. After the sit down, we went on a trail to see if we could see anything nature related. This was our first time here and were really surprised at the unique trail and to see the marshes and bay. it was sunset, so it was an extra treat. I know that we will definitely look up activities happening here next visit and probably go for an independent hike as well.

“Good birding & great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Part of the National Seashore. Several nice trails near water allow many scenic views & opportunity to see birds. Not usually crowded if you walk over a half mile from parking.
