Now Is The Best Time To Hike This Remarkable Sand Dune Trail In Massachusetts

Fall may be officially upon us, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to retreat indoors just yet. It’s actually the perfect time to explore one of the most beautiful trails in the state. The Cape Cod Provincelands Trail is a gorgeous waterfront trail that winds along the coast. It’s usually a bit crowded during the summer months, and hiking or biking in the sun can get a bit tiring. However, now is the perfect time to take advantage of the trail’s remarkable beauty.

This journey is a great way to take in the beauty of Cape Cod without having to struggle with traffic or parking. If you like to bike and want to soak up as much of that late-fall sunshine as possible, this journey is a must.

To reach the path, travel Route 6 north toward Provincetown for about six miles. Turn right on Race Point Road at the first stoplight. There will be signs indicating direction of the Beech Forest area and the visitor center. If you continue down Race Point Road, you’ll end up at Race Point beach.

There’s plenty of parking available at the visitor center year-round. If you’re planning on hitting the bike trail, it’s best to park in one of the 100 spaces in the front lot. The trail begins at the top of the hill on the far side of the observatory.
