There are so many trails to choose from at Nickerson State Park in Brewster. You can go for a long hike or a short walk, in the woods or by one of the many kettle ponds. They are all well marked with different colors and different signs. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
This is the trail around Cliff Pond which is marked with a yellow marker on the trees. . No matter where you start it, you can follow the markers or signs and not get lost. Have you ever hiked Nickerson State Park? This is a really pretty 3 mile hike around Cliff Pond.
There are so many glacial rocks at Nickerson State Park left by the glaciers thousands of years ago. These were a few that we saw by Cliff Pond. So pretty… and huge! (Click on blog link for other photo.)

We love to hike at Nickerson State Park in Brewster, especially off season when there are no crowds. This hike was so pretty and so diverse. We were both surprised at how much green there still is on the trails. The Bearberry plants on the ground have usually turned reddish-brown by now, but these are still quite green.

After the torrential rains on Saturday we got up early on Sunday and took a trail near the old water tower. It’s a great hike, but not for the feint of heart! And there are so many different intersecting trails that you can make up your own different itinerary each time you go!
