Cape Cod trail maps
The maps below show a few different areas of the park, but if you want one map to cover all of Cape Cod and include general topography, beaches, trails, bike trails, boating navigation aids, and tons more, you’ll want to go with the National Geographic Trails Illustrated map. With this, all the other maps on this page are pretty much redundant, as this one map covers it all.
The Fort Hill trail map (35 kb) shows the several trails in the Fort Hill area near Nauset Marsh in the southern part of Cape Cod, including the Red Maple Swamp Trail and Fort Hill Trail.
Here’s a White Cedar Swamp trail map (15 kb), showing this short loop trail that departs from the Marconi Station site into the swamp on a boardwalk for a round trip of a bit over one mile.
The Great Island trail map (60 kb) focuses on the series of trails over Great Island toward Great Beach Hill, southwest of Wellfleet. This is on the Cape Cod Bay side of the peninsula, rather than the Atlantic.
This is a Pamet area trail map (250 kb), showing the trail heading north from the former coast guard station toward a number of sights and overlooks along the Atlantic Ocean.
This Beech Forest trail map (75 kb) shows this series of loop trails near the end of the Cape near the Province Lands Visitor Center. You might as well do both loops – it’s only a mile or so walk.
Cape Cod bike trail maps
Here’s a Nauset bike trail map (100 kb) that shows the bike trail departing from the Salt Pond Visitor Center toward Coast Guard Beach in the southeastern part of the national seashore.
