Eastern Red Cedar Trees At Fort Hill In Eastham On Cape Cod

It was really cool to see the cut Eastern Red Cedar trees at Fort Hill on Cape Cod. They are thinning the forest while using the wood to anchor the boardwalk that is being repaired along the Red Maple Swamp Trail.

I knew they were called Eastern red Cedar trees, but I never fully realized why. Look at the inside of the tree. Wow! It is really red!

Part of the Red Maple Swamp Trail has been closed for a number of years, but should reopen this spring. What  a treat that will be! This trail makes a loop from Fort Hill through the swamp to Hemenway Landing and then back up to Fort Hill. The views are spectacular.

It is  a beautiful hike and a must if you are in the area!
