So this bridge is off Commercial Street. It offers a nice view of the estuary. On the other side is s short walk around a small island. Overall, a short walk with a nice natural view

What a great place for an afternoon walk. We took the dogs and started over the bridge, looking at all of the tiny crabs! So cool! We walked on the shady side first to keep the pups cool and there was a great breeze blowing. There were a bunch of dead horseshoe crabs because of the low tide, but luckily the dogs had no interest in eating them . It was a nice short walk out and then went back through the middle trail, again in the shade cover. I would say we were there about 45 minutes but you could make it longer or shorter depending on your adventurousness!
Warning: this post contains some disturbing content, but I think it's important to include it. We parked in the donations-gratefully-accepted small parking lot 400 feet past the bridge and enjoyed our walk around Amblen Island. Unfortunately, we discovered the body of a porpoise or dolphin on the far end of the island, marked with the day of its death, 12/24. We called the Wellfleet PD non-emergency number and were told by a dispatcher that as long as the carcass was marked, the procedure is for nature to take its course and the tide would take the body. However, it has been well above the high tide mark for over a week so I'm not sure nature is going to step in and dispose of this sad creature. In the name of dignity and sanitation? But besides that....
