Walking the Cape and Islands is the only comprehensive guide to the best walking and hiking trails on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket. Enjoy pine forests, windswept dunes, freshwater ponds, and wave-washed beaches as you stroll through scenic Cape Cod National Seashore, Nickerson State Park, Martha's Vineyard Land Bank properties, Nantucket's land bank and conservation areas, and many state and local parks and open spaces. Suitable for all abilities, the 72 walks and hikes described here range in length from 0.4 miles to 11.2 miles. Families with children will especially enjoy many of the shorter, easier walks. The book describes the area's history, climate, and geology, and tells how to have a safe and enjoyable outing. At-a-Glance Info offers details such as distance, difficulty, walk time, trail surface, facilities available, and whether bicycles, dogs, or hunting are allowed.
