My sister and I took this 7-mile loop, full-day hike for our first time while vacationing on the lower cape. It was a gorgeous, warm September day at low tide, and while people elsewhere were sweating like crazy with temps nearing 100 degrees in Boston, we were a comfortable, breezy 82 degrees. We brought plenty of water and lunch to eat, as we knew there would be nowhere to eat or drink (nor bathrooms) once on the trail. Trails are initially marked, but we later got a bit lost as trail signs seemed to disappear once you reach the beach and dunes. We stayed mainly on the beach, partly because of the "tick factor" among the dune reeds. Lots of wildlife abounded, including sea birds, gulls, tiny crabs, and even a seal which we spotted on a rock protruding offshore. We collected lots of interesting and beautiful shells and rocks as well, an unidentified animal skull and some other creepy items which we could not clearly identify as animal, plant or mineral. The area was pretty clean with not much trash from human activity. In fact, we encountered only about a dozen or so other people during our whole day. The water was warm even on the ocean side. You can walk nearly out to Jeremy Point on the far end of the "island" which is actually a long peninsula. One must use caution here, because you can get stranded on a sand bar out there if you're not careful. Bring plenty of sunscreen, potable water and insect repellant (if you're hiking in bug or tick season).
