When you take the Great Island Trail in Wellfleet, you can either go in toward the woods to the Tavern and then out to Jeremy Point or you can hike over the trails in the dunes and go straight to the beach. (Click on blog link for more photos.)
Either hike is just spectacular! You can see the expansiveness of the beach in the first photograph. In the 2nd and 3rd photos you can see the trails over the dunes that you can take to get to the beach.
Whatever you choose on this trail is a win/win for you! It is all breath-taking!
The Great Island Trail in Wellfleet is one for the whole family! There are so many variations, it’s easy to choose one, or two, that everyone will love. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
After you park at the lot, you walk down the trail until you reach the sand by the marsh which you can see in the 2nd photograph.
You can follow the trail out to Smith Tavern, Great Beach Hill or Jeremy Point, depending on which fork in the trail you take. Whichever one you take, the views are spectacular!
I always love to stop in Wellfleet and watch the boats or whatever else is going on the harbor. It’s such a beautiful place. This was so pretty looking out at low tide toward Jeremy Point. Love that sky! It looks like a water color painting…
This was such a simple, yet so pretty, photograph of Cape Cod Bay at low tide. You can see Jeremy Point in Wellfleet way in the distance.
What do you think?
The flowers were blooming and the setting was just perfect looking out toward Wellfleet Harbor. I loved the fence, the cottage and the multitudes of wild roses blooming in the field. So pretty and summery, don’t you think?
You can even see Jeremy Point way in the distance…
