Need to Know

Please respect private property near the trail. There is no official trailhead, but there is roadside parking near the southeast end of the trail.

Description

This stretch of the old Cape Cod rail oad grade makes for a pleasant and often secluded outing. You can get a sense of the wetlands around you with views through the vegetation. In spots, the vegetation can be a little overgrown—especially during the summer. This makes it feel more adventurous than the short distance and flatness suggests. The trail itself is mostly firm sand and dead tree leaves/needles. Use this trail as a way to connect longer adventures.

Flora & Fauna

Pine trees, shrub oaks, many bird species and insects
