I have posted several photographs of the boardwalk that goes over the Red Maple Swamp at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. But I have never posted one of the swamp itself.
You can see why a boardwalk is needed when the water is high. (There is still a little ice on the swamp.) Even in summer when the water is low, it is very muddy so a boardwalk is much needed to enjoy the hike.
Red Maple Trail is a beautiful hike down a trail in the woods and then through the swamp and, soon you will be able to continue the loop all the way around and back through the meadow!
Pretty, don’t you think?
