What is the most scenic walking trail?

I'm looking for a walking trail that is somewhat short and has beautiful scenery.

I don't want to simply take a walk through the woods lol

I was thinking the Nauset marsh or Fort Hill or Cedar Swamp Trail??

Thanks

If you want to go to Falmouth/Woods Hole there's the shinning sea bike trail. You can walk it though if you want. Part of it is through woods, part by the ocean.

I would choose Fort Hill. There used to be a boat trip, which left from behind the Orleans Inn, which went out through the Town Cove into the marsh area. Not sure if it still runs. The walk around the Salt Pond at the Visitors' Centre in Eastham is good too. Lovely views and the Centre is good for children too.

Atlantic White Cedar Swamo Trail in Wellfleet is my favorite. The Salt Pond Visitor's Center trail does have the best distant views that I know of. Fort Hill is also good but I have been attacked their by greenheaded flies. In Truro, Pilgrim Spring and Small's Swamp have views.

Certainly FH fits. While not a trail per se, walking around Sandwich and over to the boardwalk is a lovely walk past historic homes, mills and across marshes for a little bit of everything.

Cape Cod canal is a lovely walk.

There are many trails around Ptown. Which is most scenic???

The trail from the Visitor's Center in Eastham is part of the bike trail, so it is paved. The Fort Hill trail is not paved...not stroller friendly.
