Best Winter Hikes & Walks on Cape Cod

With about six weeks of winter remaining, we wanted to share some of the best winter hiking and walking spots on the Cape for those of you who want to enjoy the outdoors.

Cape Cod Canal

This eight mile paved walking path runs between the Sagamore and Bourne bridges. There are wonderful water views and several historic spots along the way.

Cape Cod Rail Trail

Enjoy walking through beautiful trees, quiet beaches, and peaceful Main Streets along this 22 mile paved pathway going through Brewster, Dennis, Eastham, Harwich, Orleans, and Wellfleet.

Cape Cod National Seashore Trail

This trail is most beautiful when it’s coated with white snow and offers peaceful tranquility during the winter months. You’ll pass by cranberry bogs, lighthouses, and cultural landscapes.

Scusset Beach State Reservation

Get best of both worlds on this hike. Enjoy a reasonably flat beach walk and a wooded hike through a quiet forest. This hike takes about an hour.

Lowell Holly Reservation

If you’re looking for easy walking during the winter months, this is a great spot with two ponds and plenty of wildlife in the area. This is about a two hour hike.

Crowes Pasture

This is a great spot for dog walkers. The trail takes about an hour and goes through some marshy woodlands along the shore of Cape Cod Bay.

Fort Hill Trail

One of the best spots to see birds year round, this flat trail takes about two hours to complete. It also has a hilly section for those who want more of a challenge.
