Escape the crowds and enjoy one of the most beautiful spots on the Cape. This scenic hike lands you on an expansive beach with endless tidepools at low tide and breathtaking vistas in every direction. Three excellent trails, all within the Stony Brook watershed, offer a wonderful introduction to the diversity of the Cape landscape. Walk through upland woods, across salt marshes, near fresh and saltwater creeks, or stretch your toes in a sandy beach. Truly offering something for everyone, from a short, easy loop to challenging hills, these are Cape must-dos.
