This is a social trail and not officially maintained. This is a trek over impressive sand dunes to the beach. Walking up and down the sandy dunes can be fairly challenging especially on a hot day but you'll be able to cool off with a swim once you reach the beach across the dunes. Show more

A well-paved and marked hilly trail with tons of variation (dunes, forest, ocean vistas). Accessibility: The trail surface is paved and typically at least six feet wide. The estimated grade is steep, with multiple sections above 8%. The first mile and the last 1.2 miles (if you go the opposite direction from the parking area), however, have gentle grades (5% or less) so wheelchair, mobility equipment, or stroller users may want to just do those sections to avoid the steep areas.Show more

Please note: dogs are not allowed on designated nature trails at Cape Cod National Seashore at any time, although they are allowed on-leash on the beaches when shorebirds are not nesting as well as not on lifeguard protected beaches during the summertime. This short and sweet wooded loop is great for a leisurely stroll and connects to some small sandy beaches.Show more

Tucked in a small alley way on a bustling commercial road, this short alley features an abundance of artwork by artist Bob Gasoi. This is a fun little find, but please note there is some nudity to be aware of for the young eyes!Show more
