This rewarding loop combines two terrific trails— one that explores the Red Maple Swamp, the other that circles Fort Hill. Along the way, you’ll encounter a number of different habitats—kettle-hole swamp, forest, open fields, salt marsh …. and with a wide array of plants and birds. Part of the route overlooks Nauset Marsh. This is also a great location for bird enthusiasts. Nice drive by the Penniman House on the way in where you’ll see an interesting gate made of two whale jaw bones. Bring your camera!
