  • Good hike, but be aware of the tide as the paths will wash out at high tide and you can become cut off. Dog-friendly - keep your dog on leash in designated areas though!

  • The Great Island Trail in Wellfleet is one of those magical places along Cape Cod Bay, balancing between land and sea; you will walk in a pine forest one moment and see algae on the trail the next moment. Definitely one of the best places for hiking in New England, and a must for those who like solitude.
