Cape Cod National Seashore - Red Maple Swamp and Fort Hill Trail Professional Review and Guide
"This rewarding loop combines two terrific trails— one that explores the Red Maple Swamp, the other that circles Fort Hill. Along the way, you’ll encounter a number of different habitats—kettle-hole swamp, forest, open fields, salt marsh—and with them a plethora of plants and birds.
Part of the route overlooks Nauset Marsh, which inspired two classics of nature writing, Henry Beston’s Outmost House, and Wyman Richardson’s The House on Nauset Marsh. On a walk that visits a swamp and a marsh, don’t be surprised to encounter mosquitoes and other biting insects: cover up and bring repellent."
