    4 of the Best Spots for Hiking in Cape Cod

    1. Nickerson State Park

    There is a huge network of hiking trails in Nickerson State Park! Located just a few minutes away from Candleberry Inn, this is the perfect place to see the beauty of the Cape. Whether you choose to hike or bike, each trail offers a variety of terrain. You’ll get to travel through lush hills and pine forests!

    2. Cliff Pond

    Located in Nickerson State Park, the trail around Cliff Pond is one of our favorites for hiking in Cape Cod. The 2.8-mile loop will take you around the pond! It is Cliff Pond Brewstergreat for all skill levels, and you wil get views of the water from nearly every point. Then, you can cool off by jumping into the water if it’s a hot day!

    3. Cape Cod Rail Trail

    If you prefer hiking in Cape Cod on pavement, you will love the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Years ago, because of the rail system, the peninsula turned into a summer resort destination. Food, provisions, and people were easily transported in and out. After the invention of the automobile, the rail fell into disrepair. Today, the railway has been removed and the area paved to create miles of easy trails perfect for biking, walking, and running! You’ll get to travel through pine forests, marshes, cranberry bogs, and many local spots on this popular trail.

    4. Cape Cod National Seashore

    The Cape Cod National Seashore is made up of more than 40 miles of sandy beach, ponds, and marshes. If you’d like to hike through it, we recommend going on a Ranger-Guided Tour! They can take you canoeing, take you to tour open houses, and show you the best hiking in Cape Cod. Plus, with the exception of canoe trips, each excursion is free!
