This quiet year-round campground at the beginning of Cape Cod has over 285 sites in a wooded setting (camping site 1; camping site 2). Yurt camping is now available. More than 15 miles of roads and trails provide hiking and equestrian access to over 700 acres of pitch pine and scrub oak landscape. Parking access to the beach at Scusset State Reservation is provided in camping fee.

Would have been a fun walk if it weren't for the horseflies that started attacking about 100 feet in. We gave up and decided to go to the beach instead. Also, dogs are only allowed on the marsh side - not on the beach side - of the loop (during the summer) so there wasn't even a view of the beach, just the marshes and dunes.

Not a good walking trail at all, unless you adore trudging through deep sand and enjoy the stench of stagnant water in the marshes. We went about .7 of a mile in before deciding to scrap this one and walk back. Go down the road a bit to the Old Briar Patch Trail if you want a nice walk. :)

A good walking trail. It can be very sunny in the summer and extremely (extremely!) windy in the winter. So dress accordingly and always bring a hat or scarf in the off seasons just in case, you can always leave it in the car. Don't forget water! Also the trailhead markers by the road say, Trail 1, 1.5 miles (or similar) they mean it's one and a half miles OUT, not the loop! Beach is a good winter walk and a good place for a few shells but the beach is rocky so footing can be iffy at times.

pretty sand dunes in looped trail

Very flat and long. Much longer than expected. The scenery does not change often but is wonderful. You can also turn on multiple trails along the way in order to have a lighter hike.

Really easy flat hike. Done in about 25 minutes. As of 5/26 the trail is clear as day. We even ventured off onto the "blue trail". Very nice.

Hiked out to the tenting are (fee required) in a rain storm on September 13, 2015. It is approx 3.7 miles along the beach side to the tenting area. It is a beautiful hike along the ocean but you walk in sand the entire time. The tenting area is protected from the wind with wild cranberries and beach plums in the area. The next day, in beautiful weather, we hiked along the marsh trail which is mostly flat but also sandy. My legs from the knees down got a geed work out. On a nice day it is a beautiful hike if you can handle hiking on the sand.
