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.
Did You Know?
The area at the northernmost tip of Cape Cod National Seashore in Provincetown is known as “Race Point”. It gets its name from the swift tidal “race” that swirls from ocean to bay around the point. The swimming beach is located a safe distance away in calmer waters.
