    The Goose Pond Trail is a mix of boardwalk, sand and pine needles. The trail winds through forest, out into open marsh land and back into forest. There is a side trail that has a boardwalk over the marsh land onto a beach area of the Wellfleet Bay. A lot of photographic opportunities. There is a guide book you can purchase or 'rent' to explain the different birds and flora you might encounter. The trial is easy with a mix of sun and shade. Stay on the trail-it is well marked. There is private property inside the trail-please respect their privacy. It does seem to be a popular trail. Was a very enjoyabl hike.

    We left early from Boston and got there by 10AM. The place was still empty of people, but teaming with birds and other creatures.

    Definitely the time to be there. Check out the full write-up here:
