Nice short hike with great views of the shore. Easy to make this a round trip by walking a short distance along the road. Safe to do as we saw no cars. My colleagues who don’t like walking said it was perfect. It was hot so a hat & sunscreen is a necessity.

A nice walk with a surprising amount of verticality for the Cape. The beach overlook is worth the walk. Watch out for poison ivy and some overgrown trails near the Bog house. We took the road back to the trail head instead of doubling back on the path.

This past Monday, we drove over to this trail from Orleans only to find out the trail was actually closed to dogs. You probably want to investigate a little more before you head over.

Do not hike up Higgins Hollow Road toward camera icon on map for view or picture. There is no view. Trails are not maintained, overgrown and impassable. Stay south of start of Higgins and towards ocean for best views. 3 stars for lack of maintenance. 5 stars if you stay south of Higgins

Terrific hike thru Truro's old cranberry bogs, only partially shaded, can get buggy, ends at hill summit with panaramic view of Truro's Balston beach with Pamet River & ocean breach break thru!

Great views of the dunes and beach. Bog house is a really cool landmark too. Secluded beach access if you're up for the trek.

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

It was too foggy to see the views from the hilltop but this short and easy hike was worth it just to look at the interesting vegetation and to show our nephew the cranberry bog. Very well maintained trails and great for kids! A map and interesting facts about the vegetation and history can be found here: https://www.nps.gov/caco/planyourvisit/upload/FinalPametrackcards.pdf It was well-worth a read ahead of the hike so we could explain the significance of what we were looking at to our nephew along the hike.

This is a National Seashore trail up a large hill covered in bearberry ground cover. At the top you are overlooking a 360 panorama of the the Atlantic Ocean, the Pamet River, and wooded hills of outer Cape Cod. Not a long hike at all, but the views are great.
