Salt Pond Visitor Center

Losing an hours sleep didn’t detour a special walk for Maggie, me and our good friend Joan. We are always looking for new and different walks on Cape Cod.
The 9 mile drive to Nauset Beach Salt Pond Visitors Center is open all year, giving breathtaking views of Nauset Marsh and the Atlantic.
Convenient to the popular 1.5 mile Nauset Marsh Trail and the Buttonbush Trail, a .25 mile multi-sensory trail that featuring a guide rope and text panels printed in large lettering and Braille, and the Nauset Bicycle Trail.
Today we took the trail in the woods. It’s about a 2 mile walk to get to Coast Guard Beach. We were surprised to see so few trees fallen from our winter storms. We often see many surfers at the beach. Not today. It was high tide and the waters were still quite rough. We also enjoy the many birds we encounter along the way. Cape Cod offer several places for bird watching

We always recommend a trip to Salt Pond not only for the walking trails but the museum has so many interesting things including short movies.

Another perfect day on Cape Cod and the sun is shining as we arrive at the Old Manse Inn in Brewster.
