This trail is a trek over impressive sand dunes to the beach. Walking up and down the sandy dunes can be fairly challenging especially on a hot day but you'll be able to cool off with a swim once you reach the beach across the dunes. This is a great hike for kids to get an up-close view of the sand dune ecosystem on Cape Cod!

What a beautiful hike!!! Strenuous but simply gorgeous! Swarms of swallowtails entertained us! Bring a camera and water .

The sand dunes provide a fascinating and unique ecosystem. Very cool! You could easily imagine yourself on another planet.

Parking could be a bit of trouble in the busy summer months since the highway has no parking signs and only 3 spaces are designated for this trail. The beach may be quieter than other Cape Cod options since the only way to access it is by hiking in from Route 6.
