Nice habitat, but bring repellent and expect some trail portions to be muddy. The actual swamp is quite attractive.

This is an easy walk with a really nice boardwalk through the swamp. Maybe fall is not the best time? Still enjoyed it and the friendly Blue Jay! Good for kids and all ages.

This trail doesn't start off looking like much, but once it gets into the swamp area it really feels like you have entered a different area. Very pretty. Easy walk for pretty much any age.

Perfect for all ages, super easy walk (I did it in flip flops). Felt like you're in a fairy tale, very pretty. Perfect for cloudy or sunny day

Stopped here to stretch our legs while biking about 30 miles of the cape cod rail trail. From The reviews I expected more, I guess. It was a nice walk, but wasn't worth the hype and "otherworldly" descriptions. Pretty terrain, nice walk.

This is one of my all time favorite places to see when on the Cape. A short walk through a beautiful forest of white oaks is the boardwalk taking you into the magical world of the cedar swamp, hidden away and protecting all of her...More
