In addition to miles of beaches that provide a wonderful walking environment, there are twelve walking trails at the seashore that are open year round: in Eastham - the Fort Hill, Red Maple Swamp, Buttonbush, Nauset Marsh, and Doane trails; in Wellfleet - the Atlantic White Cedar Swamp and Great Island trails; in Truro - Pamet Area Trails, Woods Walk at Highlands Center, Small's Swamp, and Pilgrim Spring trails; and in Provincetown - the Beech Forest Trail. Interpretive folders with information on natural and historic features are available at some trailheads.
The Self Guiding Trail Folder includes basic details on all trails.
