Cape Cod National Seashore - Pilgrim Spring Area - Small’s Swamp Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Short in length but rich in history and plant life, this loop around Small’s Swamp, at the bottom of a glacial kettle hole, is a rewarding walk back in time.

Native Americans, the newcomers aboard the Mayflower, and 19th-century farmers all had a stake in this little plot of ground, which is now preserved for us to enjoy. Trailside markers identify some of the common plants. (While here, also visit the Pilgrim Spring Trail, which departs from the same trailhead as the trail to Small’s Swamp.)"
