Cape Cod National Seashore Hiking Trails

Situated on the Outer Cape, the Cape Cod National Seashore was established by President John F. Kennedy in 1961. The area encompasses more than forty miles of natural habitats that support local and migratory species. Throughout this area, there are dozens of walking trails to explore Cape Cod’s forests, marshes and scenic ocean vistas.

Only three miles wide, Eastham is the gateway to the Cape Cod National Seashore. Here are a few hiking trails to explore on the Outer Cape:

  • Fort Hill Trail. This one-mile trail in Eastham spans across open fields and connects with the Red Maple Swamp Trail. Many locals consider Fort Hill as the best birdwatching site on the Cape because of its variety of habitats. As you walk on the trail beside the Nauset Marsh, see how many species you can spot while you take in stunning views of the surrounding marsh area.
  • Red Maple Swamp Trail. This 0.8-mile trail in Eastham takes hikers directly into the heart of a Red Maple forest. While this trail is beautiful year-round, it is exceptionally gorgeous in autumn when the maple leaves turn into striking hues of red and orange.
  • Nauset Marsh Trail. Also located in Eastham, you can find this 1.3-mile loop trail directly behind the Salt Pond Visitor Center. On this trail, you will experience some of the most stunning natural scenery on Cape Cod. Highlights include the Salt Pond’s eastern shore, wooded lands, a wildflower meadow and views of the Atlantic shoreline.
  • Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Extended Trail. This 2.2-mile loop trail in Wellfleet enchants hikers as they walk through an oak and pine forest before reaching a swamp area with Atlantic White Cedar trees. Native to the Atlantic Coast of North America, these trees can grow as tall as 75 feet. As you hike through this area, you may notice the aromatic cedar-like scent of their leaves.
  • Great Island Trail. This 4.7-mile loop trail in Wellfleet offers plenty of opportunities for hikers to spot wildlife in the open salt marsh and native pitch pine forests. This trail also features commanding views of Wellfleet Harbor and Cape Cod Bay from Great Island and Great Beach Hill.
  • Pamet Area Trails. This 1.9-mile trail in Truro takes hikers through wooded lands to Bearberry Hill Summit for a view of the ocean. The trail also passes by a house built in 1830, that is a reminder of a bygone era when cranberries were produced for commercial use on the Cape.
  • Pilgrim Spring Trail. This 0.7-mile loop trail in Truro takes hikers through a pine and oak forest. It also commemorates the place Pilgrims took their first drink of fresh water in New England.
  • Beech Forest Trail. This one-mile loop trail in Provincetown winds through a hardwood forest with Beech and Maple trees. This trail is one of the most popular places to explore on the Outer Cape, especially in autumn during the peak of the fall foliage change.
  • Small Swamp Trail. This 0.7-mile trail is situated at the northern end of Cape Cod National Seashore in Provincetown. The trail features a small creek, dunes and ocean views. It also passes by the remnants of a farm operated in the 1860s by Thomas Small.

Provincetown Lighthouse Hiking Trails

Provincetown Lighthouse Hiking Trails

Provincetown is one of the most popular destinations on Cape Cod. It is also the place where Pilgrims first landed in 1620. Centuries later, Cape Cod’s lighthouse beacons guided mariners safely around the perils of the Cape’s coastlines. Here are two hiking trails to explore:

  • Wood End Lighthouse Trail. Built in 1862, the Wood End Light guided mariners through the waters of the northern end of the Cape. This moderate hike is ideal for visitors who want to take a long walk on the beach during low tide.
  • Long Point Lighthouse Trail. This 6.4-mile loop trail is in Provincetown at the northeastern tip of Long Point. The Long Point lighthouse was established in 1826 to guide mariners into Provincetown Harbor. This moderate trail is for hikers who want to enjoy a longer trail with beautiful views of Cape Cod’s untamed landscapes.

In conclusion, hiking is a popular way to enjoy Cape Cod’s ecological diversity. Trails include pine forests, freshwater and saltwater marshes, ponds and ocean views. As you hike through the quiet solitude of the trails on Cape Cod, you will discover a land shaped by nature’s seasons, forever intertwined with the story of America’s people, past and present.
