The hike out to Great Island in Wellfleet on Cape Cod is very diverse. You hike on the marsh side of Wellfleet Bay, through the woods and then out on the expansive beaches. It is absolutely spectacular!
Have you ever hiked any part of Great Island in Wellfleet?
Phil and I were out taking an early morning hike on one of the trails in Eastham on Cape Cod when we saw a huge flock of Northern Flickers flitting from tree to tree.
This juvenile Northern Flicker perched on this dead branch just long enough for me to take a photograph.
Cure little guy, don’t you think?
Hiking out to Jeremy Point on Cape Cod is a great hike and a great experience. I took this photograph as we got closer to the end of the hike, where you can see Jeremy Point in the distance.
You can see Wellfleet Harbor on the left of the photograph and the Atlantic Ocean on the right.
Pretty spectacular, don’t you think?
The views of Nauset Marsh from Fort Hill on Cape Cod are just spectacular! You can see Nauset Light in the distance, as well as the distant shores.
Up close, there are a lot of trails around Fort Hill for you to explore. Don’t forget your binoculars with all of the birds.
Or take your kayak out for a beautiful paddle around the marshes and see all of the amazing wildlife. There is so much to do around Fort Hill and Nauset Marsh, I’m sure I will have many more Blogs about this amazing place!
Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary on Cape Cod is one of my favorite places to visit. Every day is different with something new to see.
Wellfleet Bay provides peace and unmatched beauty on the hillsides and shoreline overlooking Wellfleet Harbor. Extensive trails bring you to a panoramic salt marsh, sandy barrier beach, and pine woodlands, each attracting a wide array of wildlife. The sanctuary features a universally accessible trail and an award-winning “green” nature center with numerous exhibits and aquariums.
The hike out to the beaches is spectacular. Don’t forget your binoculars as there is so much to see. I’m sure you will see lots of photographs of this magic place in my future Blogs.
