Beech Forest Trail In Provincetown On Cape Cod Is Gorgeous!

If you’re looking for a gorgeous and fairly easy hike in Provincetown, try the Beech Forest Trail. It is just beautiful as it meaders on a boardwalk over the marshes, through a beech tree forest, through a pine forest and then around the lake.

It doesn’t get much prettier, especially in the fall when the colors are spectacular!

Slender Fragrant Goldenrod Wildflowers At Fort Hill On Cape Cod.

I never knew there are so many different varieties of Goldenrod wildflowers. Wow! I saw this Slender Fragrant Goldenrod a couple of weeks ago while hiking at Fort Hill. Although I’ve seen Goldenrod for years and years, I don’t remember seeing this one before. It looked so delicate.

Slender Fragrant Goldenrod has 1/4″ tiny yellow flowers that form a flat-topped cluster at the top of the plant, which grows 1-2 feet. They bloom from July through October on dry sandy soil and fields.

Have you ever seen a Slender Fragrant Goldenrod?

Little Cliff Pond Trail At Nickerson State Park In Brewster On Cape Cod.

We took an awesome hike at Nickerson State Park in Brewster called Little Cliff Pond Trail. You hike along the shores of Cliff Pond, then through the woods to Little Cliff Pond where you see some spectacular view, especially in the fall.

The hike back is along the opposite shore but up on a cliff along the smaller pond, thus called Little Cliff Pond. It was really pretty and fairly easy for the whole family.

Have you ever hiked Little Cliff Pond Trail at Nickerson State Park?

 

Relax At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod.

The trails at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary have many benches along the way so you can relax and enjoy the spectacular views. This is one of my favorite benches along the Try Island Trail. You can see way out on the salt marsh.

Beautiful, don’t you think?

 

Pretty Pink Wildflower At The Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary On Cape Cod.

There are still a few wildflowers blooming on the trails on Cape Cod. I saw this delicate pink wildflower while hiking on the Bayview Trail at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.

I’ve looked and looked in my books and on the internet but can’t seem to identify it. Does anyone know what kind of wildflower this is?

So pretty and delicate, don’t you think?

Pretty Fall Hike On Cape Cod.

The leaves are starting to turn here on Cape Cod. I loved the colors in this photograph on the John Kenrick Woods Trail in Orleans. Part of the trail goes through the White Pine woods and the other part goes down this trail to Arey’s Pond.

I couldn’t decide if I liked the horizontal one or the vertical one better. What do you think?
