Beech trees filter the sun at Beech Forest Trail in Provincetown. Chickadees are known to hop onto your hand if they think you might have some seed in your pockets (so bring some!). Located along the great north-south Atlantic Flyway, this is a favorite nesting site for migrating shore- and seabirds during their peregrinations.
Sandy spots attract picnickers and a sweet, freshwater pond offers respite from the surging sea. Bicyclists share the path.
