Contact: Sue Moynihan, 508-957-0738
With the exception of the Nauset Bike Trail in Eastham, which is closed between Salt Pond Visitor Center and Doane Picnic Area due to downed trees, all Cape Cod National Seashore facilities are open.
Bicyclists may ride along Nauset Road to Doane Picnic Area to access the open section of the bike trail between Doane Picnic Area and Coast Guard Beach. Riders should use extreme caution, be alert for cars, and ride single file. Work is underway to remove the trees which have fallen across the bike trail.
Salt Pond and Province Lands Visitor Centers are open, and all scheduled ranger-guided programs and open houses and tours at historic buildings have resumed.
For more information, contact Salt Pond Visitor Center at (508) 255-3421, or Province Lands Visitor Center at (508) 487-1256.

In 1990, an intense series of storms uncovered a prehistoric site on Coast Guard Beach in Eastham, MA. Archaeologists excavated the Carns Site, which was lived in by native peoples during the Early and Middle Woodland period, or approximately 2,100 to 1,100 years ago.
