A Local’s Guide: 4 Beautiful Spring Walks on Cape Cod


There are a number of spots across Cape Cod to enjoy a walk on a beautiful, warm Spring day. Here are my favorites, in no particular order:

1. Bearberry Hill (Truro)

Tucked away in the sandy hills of Truro, Bearberry Hill is as beautiful to see as it is fun to say. This trail is part of the Pamet Trail System in the Cape Cod National Seashore. On this walk you can  by visiting an old cranberry house maintained by the Cape Cod National Seashore to look as it did when it was actively used a hundred years ago. On top of the hill you get a beautiful view of Ballston Beach.

2. Bass Hole Boardwalk (Yarmouth Port)

This boardwalk has easily been on my all-time top 10 places on Cape Cod list for a long time. In Yarmouth Port on the bay side of the Cape, gorgeous sunsets are abound. Park at Gray’s Beach and the end of the boardwalk is a short 5 minute walk. Make sure to bring a camera!

3. Uncle Tim’s Bridge (Wellfleet)

A walk over this narrow, wooden bridge leads to trails located on a small island in Wellfleet Bay. There you can see clam shells scattered along roots of trees and fiddler crabs scurrying about the marsh at low tide. Spring is the best time to take in the delightful view of blooming cherry trees along the short walk from from Wellfleet’s quaint Main Street.

4. Cape Cod Canal (Bourne)

This is no meandering path weaving through beach grass or Atlantic White Cedar. No it is not, but this paved path leads you to some of the most breathtaking sunsets you will ever see. Line things up just right and you can capture the sun setting over the water and through two (or possibly three!) arching bridges. This path, unlike the other ones I mentioned, is also perfect for a 15 mile round trip bike ride.
