I can’t wait until it gets a bit warmer and we can head up to Provincetown for a picnic on Beech Forest Trail, part of the National Seashore just outside of the center of Provincetown. It is such a pretty trail over a boardwalk where you can see many different species of birds, through the forest and around Blackwater Pond. It’s a “must” if you’re in the Provincetown area!
And there, at the end of the trail is the perfect picnic table to relax and enjoy nature.
One of tour favorite hikes is the one by the Visitors Center in Eastham called the Nauset Marsh Trail. We’ve always called it the Salt Pond Trail. It is such a pretty hike. (Click for more photos or a map at the end.)
The Nauset marsh Trail has so much diversity from hiking around the Salt Pond, over a bridge over the salt marsh where you can see many water birds feeding and through the woods to a gorgeous overlook of Nauset Marsh all the way out to Nauset Beach. From there you can hike back to the Visitors Center or continue out to Doane Rock and Coast Guard Beach.
It really is an awesome hike, any time of the day and any time of the year.
Bayview Trail at the Wellfleet Wildlife Sanctuary has several benches that beckon you as you hike by. The views are spectacular which ever way you look. A perfect place to sit, relax and enjoy nature on the trail.
I especially liked this bench on the trail which looks out over the salt marsh to Wellfleet Bay. So pretty, don’t you think?
I am always so surprised to Great Blue Herons way up high in a tree. It just seems natural that they are by the shore fishing, not up in a tree resting.
I saw these two Great Blue Herons on the Nauset Marsh Trail by the Salt Pond. Pretty cool, huh?
This was one of the prettiest trails to the beach that I’ve seen in awhile. It’s always fun to discover a new trail, especially one as pretty as this.
What do you think?
The trails to the beach in Wellfleet are so different and so pretty. These 2 trails lead out to the ocean, opposite the harbor side.
Love the clouds in the background. What do you think?
