Cape Cod National Seashore - Nauset Marsh Trail and Coast Guard Beach Professional Review and Guide

"Don’t miss this scenic stroll beside Nauset Marsh, one of the Cape’s natural wonders and setting for two classics of nature writing—The Outermost House, by Henry Beston, and The House on Nauset Marsh, by Wyman Richardson. The Richardson house still stands, but Beston’s cabin, which was nestled in the dunes on Coast Guard Beach, was last seen floating out to sea during the blizzard of 1978.

The mostly level trail winds through forest and beside the marsh, giving you the chance to study some of the area’s plants and wildlife. Trailside markers identify some common trees and shrubs."
