Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail In Massachusetts Leads To Incredibly Scenic Views

While there are numerous trails in Massachusetts that offer incredible views, this boardwalk hike on the Cape in Wellfleet offers a unique swamp hike with an outstanding view of the ocean at the end. Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail is just as it sounds, being a loop-trail in a swamp near the Atlantic, surrounded by cedar, featuring cedar plank boardwalks. While this trail isn’t too long, it won’t take much out of you, but the views throughout and at the end are so worth it. This boardwalk hike in Massachusetts is truly like walking through an enchanting fairy tale.
