Very nice stroll along estuary. Red Maple Swamp trail is out: no walkway through swamp; under repair for 4 years. Walk was scenic and worth the effort. Good birding area.

Quick and easy trail from the salt pond out to the beach was about 15-20min bike ride on the trail. We had age ranges from 8-56 years old varying levels on being in shape and out of shape. Has a couple of hills to climb and cruise down. Getting to the beach is very cool with not too many people there where you can see seals and some historical coast guard buildings. Great views as well.

I had bad luck bird-wise on the afternoon I went, but the boardwalk is beautiful. Beware that the entrance described in the directions is no longer open and it's not possible to make a loop. To access the boardwalk, either approach from the Penniman House or walk the paved trail to the Sharpening stone, continue on the trail to the right and make another right into the swamp area.

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.

This is an absolutely gorgeous trail. It is easy, and the variety between the ponds, woods, and Coast Guard Beach are amazing. Just use your bug spray!

Great hike with the kids down to Coast Guard Beach!

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.

This series of trails can take you by foot or bike from the Eastham Salt Pond National Seashore Visitors Center all the way to the ocean at Coast Guard Beach. It is a classic and excellent in woods and waterscapes

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