Access at seashore locations
Sections of the boardwalk at the Red Maple Swamp Trail have been closed due to structural deterioration and safety concerns. Check at Salt Pond Visitor Center for the current status of this trail, and for your safety, remain out of closed areas.
Cape Cod National Seashore, and some neighboring towns, require that pets be leashed at all times. Specific areas where pets are prohibited are posted. Ask at seashore visitor centers or ranger stations about restrictions that apply.
Here is a link to a brochure about Cape Cod National Seashore's pet policy.
