There are so many walks on the Cape that it can be hard to decide which to go on. However, there are some that are more well-known than others. For people on the Lower Cape, there are old stand-bys such as Nickerson or the many Harwich Conservation Lands.

But if you want to explore a lesser-known slice of the area, check out the Punkhorn Parklands in Brewster. This area consists of 45 different trails that wind in and out of marshes, meadows, cranberry bogs, and pleasant woods.

This is a great walk if you have a day to explore or if you want to try something new each day of the week all in the same place!

The Punkhorns are a wonderful spot to bring your dog or to wear out the kids, and they are free to explore.

This spectacular spot is quiet, tranquil, and the perfect place to unwind outside, so be sure to check it out if you want something new!
