All Persons Trail

Mass Audubon created this self-guided, fully accessible trail so everyone could experience the very special nature of Wellfleet Bay. The sensory trail overlays the Robert R. Read-All Persons Pathway and Goose Pond Trail, which increases accessibility for all visitors.


Approximately one-quarter mile long from nature center to Goose Pond.


  • Trail follows a wide path with a smooth, packed surface.
  • There is a boardwalk at Goose Pond.
  • At Marker 6, an optional short boardwalk leads to a sturdy dock.
  • Most of the trail is level, with one gentle slope between Markers 4 & 5.
  • There are no stairs or steep slopes.
  • An audio tour is available for download.
