Moderate pace- 2-3 miles, 1 1/2-2 hours; terrain includes sandy beach, road, boardwalk, and woodland trails.
Description: After a fierce storm in 2009, ancient stumps appeared in the water off South Cape Beach. We’ll take a peek at the water’s edge to see if we can see the remaining stumps and spend the rest of the hike “walking forward through time” to see what the submerged area resembled hundreds of years ago. We’ll include bits of information that recent research has discovered as well as enjoy the autumn landscape of beach, dune, salt marsh, and coastal woodlands. Walk led by staff at Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve.
