Fort Hill On Cape Cod Is Awesome Any Time Of The Year!

124 views

Fort Hill, part of the National Seashore,  is a wonderful place to go… any time of the year. You can hike or walk or sit on the bench and enjoy those spectacular views of Nauset Marsh.

You can take a walk on the boardwalk across Red Maple Swamp down to Hemenway Landing and see the boats going in or out.

Fort Hill is always a special place… any time of the year.

 

Make Your Own Trails On The AllTrails App On Cape Cod Or Anywhere.

We’ve had so much fun with the AllTrails App. At first we followed many of the trails in our area and then we decided to try and make some of our own.  (Click on blog for full photo.)

On the AllTrails App you can record a hike, name it, describe it, add photos and  rate it. It has really been a lot of fun and very exciting! This hike we recorded at Nickerson State Park and named it Two Pond Roundabout. You can see at the bottom the distance, elevation gain and time.

This photograph was one of the little ponds we saw on our adventure. Such pretty reflections.

Cliff Pond In Nickerson State Park On Cape Cod Was Spectacular!

We hiked out around Cliff Pond the other day and the views were unbelievable. If you stood one way, you got the first photograph. If you turned around, you got the 2nd one. (Click on blog link to see other photo.)

Both are pretty spectacular, don’t you think? Great place to take photographs!

The Forest Is Still So Green In The Middle Of Winter Here On Cape Cod.

It’s amazing to see how green the forests are here on Cape Cod  in the middle of winter. The Bearberry leaves, which  you can see in the first photograph, still provide much green ground cover. (Click blog link to see other photo.)

I just did a bit of research and found that Bearberries will lose their leaves but not until mid-winter or later. I’ll have to take a similar photograph in a month or so and compare them.

You can also see all the new undergrowth of pine trees on the sides of the trails. So far this winter, our forest hikes have been pretty colorful!

Flax Pond Loop Trail At Nickerson State Park In Brewster On Cape Cod.

It was another cold and windy day so we headed inland over to Nickerson State Park. We had never hiked the Flax Pond Loop Trail so we thought we’d give it a “go.” (Click on blog link to see other photos.)

What a beautiful hike! Most of the trail is within a few feet of the pond which makes it so pretty and great for taking photographs. We started out on the shady side which was a bit brisk to start but ended on the sunny side which was much warmer.

It was a sunny day so you can see all the beautiful reflections in the pond as you hike around. There are also a lot of beaches for swimming, picnic tables for picnicking and benches for sitting. We thought about how much fun families and especially the kids would have during the summer months.

Just beautiful, don’t you think? Have you ever been to Nickerson State Park in the summer?
