Beautiful, easy walk. Some shade, some direct sun. I wish we had packed swimsuits and a lunch to hang out on the beach at the end of the walk. Quiet and relaxing afternoon at the sanctuary!

Preserved by the Audubon Society, a donation of $5, will get you onto the trails. Great for birding and walking. I went during February and it was muddy, but the tide was out so I can go across the boardwalk. Great observation areas!

This is Audubon preservation land and a beautiful area to experience in most temperatures. I have hiked all of the trails in the small system there and this particular one was a good one for takin mom at her skill level while offering lots of beauty for mine. All of the routes are fun so make the day your own. Tide levels will change the scenery and the paths feature forest and marshland views that are just amazing. The visitor center has really been putting in some great updates too with turtles and fish and the turkey and wild bird feeders can be enjoyed through big windows. You're likely to meet all of those same birds on trail too. Trails are a good width and might be wheelchair accessible though you can call to verify. A small fee for area use helps maintain this fantastic wildland preserve and there are great bathrooms and a gift shop in visitor center too.

Check the tide chart before you go; you can get stuck if you go out before high tide. This is a beautiful, scenic walk from the visitor center (great for kids and adults) that has a wooden plank boardwalk out to the bay. During Summer the boardwalk is surrounded by beautiful, lush green sea grass. At low tide and sunset there will be small tidal pools that fill up and reflect the sunset colors which are fun to walk around. Be prepared for green head flies. You may see some turtles as well.

Great easy walk. I'd highly suggest walking to where it meets the ocean. Watch out for the free head flies though- they were brutal.

The Wellfleet Audubon offers a modern and interesting visitor center and a variety of mostly level treks covering pretty much the whole sanctuary. Lots of woods, a freshwater mini-river which feeds into the marsh, and a boardwalk leading to an outer Sanctuary beach (however, at high tide the boardwalk is submerged). The visitor center posts the times of high tide, so you can plan to avoid being stranded.

A very beautiful stroll along a well maintained trail/path. I enjoyed walking on the boardwalk along the path.
