"A man may stand there and put all America behind him." Henry David Thoreau The great Outer Beach described by Thoreau in the 1800s is protected within the national seashore. Forty miles of pristine sandy beach, marshes, ponds, and uplands support diverse species. Lighthouses, cultural landscapes, and wild cranberry bogs offer a glimpse of Cape Cod's past and continuing ways of life. Swimming beaches and walking and biking trails beckon today's visitors.

A beautiful trail but watch out for skeeters. one of our favorite short trails on the cape.

Very good trail, combination of beach, marsh and woods. The scenery is beautiful!!

Nice hike along the top of the dunes and then back through the forest to bog house

beautiful walk but wouldn't rate it as hard - highly recommend

I'd call it more of a walk than a hike. Gorgeous and sandy.

Hard to follow trails, great scenery. If you don't just mind wandering around it's a great place to hike.

Great hike. Awesome scenery. It depends what you are used to doing (not as hard as a mountain hike) I wouldn't rate as difficult. On a nice June day it would be a cool walk on the beach. We did it on 30 degree day with 40 mph winds. Loved the challenge!
