It is such a treat this time of year to see the wildflowers starting to bloom along the trails. This one was blooming at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. There are so many things to see there from wildflowers to wildlife, to birds, etc. Just take one of their many trails and you never know what you will see!
The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is one of our favorite places to hike. It was especially pretty this day with the Forsythia blooming along the trail. It feels like spring is just about here!
Have you ever hike at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary? With so much to see in the visitor’s center and along the trails, it is great for the whole family!
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?
