Fort Hill On Cape Cod Is Awesome Any Time Of The Year!


Fort Hill, part of the National Seashore, ¬†is a wonderful place to go… any time of the year. You can hike or walk or sit on the bench and enjoy those spectacular views of Nauset Marsh.

You can take a walk on the boardwalk across Red Maple Swamp down to Hemenway Landing and see the boats going in or out.

Fort Hill is always a special place… any time of the year.


Great Blue Heron Fishing At Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.


This Great Blue Heron was fishing for lunch the other day as we walked by on the boardwalk between Doane Rock Trail and Coast Guard Beach. (Click on blog link for other photo.) You can see he has already caught his lunch in the first photograph, while in the 2nd photograph he is trying to catch his meal.

What a great hike! You never know what you will see. There is always something going on by Nauset Marsh. Make sure you look on both sides of the bridge as you walk by. You might even see a Great Blue Heron catching his lunch!.

Fort Hill on Cape Cod Was Beautiful!


One of our favorite places to hike on Cape Cod, Fort Hill in Eastham, is only a few minutes from our home. Since the Wilderness Volunteers cut back a lot of the brush, the views are spectacular!

This is one of the glacial rocks that has been obscured for years behind the dense brush. Now you can see all the way across Nauset marsh to Coast Guard Station.

So pretty! Thank you again,  Wilderness Volunteers!

Beautiful View Of Nauset Marsh On Cape Cod.


Nauset Marsh is beautiful from any view. I took this photograph the other day at Fort Hill on the trail that goes way down to the water, past the big rock on the right from the upper parking lot.

The grass is all brown but the water was so blue and you can see Coast Guard Station in the background. If you haven’t taken this trail, try it. It’s not too hard and just gorgeous!

Much Diversity On The Nauset Marsh Trail On Cape Cod.


Most of the photographs that I post of the Nauset Marsh Trail are of the trail and Nauset Marsh or the Salt Pond. But a good part of the trail takes you through the woods along Nauset Marsh which are so pretty.

I took this photograph of the trail which leads you from the Salt Pond by the visitors center, across a bridge over the marsh and then up a hill, through the woods to a beautiful overlook of Nauset Marsh.

Have you ever hiked the Nauset Marsh Trail? So pretty, don’t you think?
