“The Sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.”
Jacques Cousteau
White Cedar Swamp Trail

Located close to the captain Penniman house and part of the Cape Cod National Seashore, the White Cedar Swamp Trail is an easy, family fun hike that kids and adults will love. About a mile total distance, this mostly shaded loop, (great on a hot day), explores one of the Cape’s few remaining stands of Atlantic white cedar. Some sand trails, great stretch of boardwalk over water, a few stairs and lavatories in the summer. Trailside markers identify many of the common plants, and you’ll probably get to see and hear some forest birds as well. The swamp has standing water, so mosquito repellent is always a good idea in the summer.
Sharpening Stone a Must
Along the trail, there is a giant boulder used by native americans for sharpening their tools and knives. It was discovered hidden in the marsh and moved to it's present location. Running your hand over the scoured surface is sure to bring thoughts and visions of what the tribes of Cape Cod saw as they sat and sharpened their tools.
