The Red Maple Swamp Trail has always been one of my favorite trails on Cape Cod. It is so pretty any time of the year. There is a section of boardwalk that lets you hike over the swampy areas which you can see in the photograph.
Have you ever hiked the Red Maple Swamp Trail?
It seems like every hike that every hike we take at Nickerson State Park is a 10! They are all so diverse and there is so much to see. (Click on blog link to see water tower.)
After the torrential rains on Saturday we got up early on Sunday and took a trail near the old water tower. It’s a great hike, but not for the feint of heart! And there are so many different intersecting trails that you can make up your own different itinerary each time you go!
You never know what you will see on the trails on Cape Cod. This flock of wild turkeys was meandering through the woods.
Have you ever seen wild turkeys out on the trails where you hike?
We had not been on White Cedar Swamp Trail for quite a while. I love this part where the trees are so uniquely shaped. They are so cool! It’s a great hike for a cold or windy day.
This is the coolest tree on one of the trails at Nickerson State Park in Brewster on Cape Cod. It looks just like a foot, don’t you think?
The tide was really high at Nauset Marsh as we walked along the trail at Fort Hill. But still, so pretty, even in the winter.
