This exploration of a densely wooded conservation area tucked between Route 6 and Route 6A shows the value of protecting parcels of open space amid busy residential and commercial zones. Ramble along old dirt roads beside stands of tall pines and oaks, with only birdsong for a soundtrack, and the hustle and bustle of the Cape’s biggest town, Barnstable, and its busiest village, Hyannis, all but disappear.
