Description: This relatively small parcel and short trail off of Lieutenant Island Road provides a surprisingly varied and tranquil landscape of field, forest, and marsh. The walker can reduce the distance of the hike by taking the inner loop for a portion of the trail or extend the experience by stopping at a bench to gaze and reflect. The culminating Salt Marsh view, in particular, stimulates the walker to look at the play of light and the great vistas, the flight and feeding of land and sea birds, and to savor the aroma of pine and sea. Parking is on the shoulder of Lieutenant Island Road.
Directions: Turn west on Lieutenant Island Road, which is 0.3 miles south of the Marconi entrance and 1.5 miles north of the Wellfleet/ Eastham town line. Follow this road for approximately 0.5 miles to the trailhead sign on the left. Please walk in from Lieutenant Island Road. Do not park on Moody’s Way. Please stay on the trails to protect fragile plants in the area and to respect private properties.
