Hiking Backwoods & Beaches
A Cape Cod Field School for Adults
2-day course

Take the road less traveled and cover new ground during this active weekend hiking the backwoods, beaches, and dunes of the Outer Cape. Watch seals from shore, observe migrant birds, and enjoy fall foliage. Each hike averages five miles on varied terrain, including soft sand, wooded trails, and moderate hills. A shorter night hike is also scheduled. This is a strenuous weekend but well worth it!
