Visitors to Cape Cod come for many reasons, whether it is the beautiful coastline or the lush forests, the sunning on the beach, shopping, or grabbing a lobster dinner. However, there is another, far less crowded side to Cape Cod. All along the peninsula you can find tranquil paths through the woods, filled with resplendent scents of nature and all sorts of animals. We can understand that you do not want to leave your four-legged friend behind when traveling, and in Cape Cod you do not even have to if you stay in one of the pet-friendly hotels the town has to offer.
Several animals to look for while on a walk are deer, rabbits, and foxes, although the latter is more commonly seen at night. There are also plenty of birds for the more ornithological inclined visitors, from hawks and falcons to crows, blackbirds, sparrows as well as the common seagull.
Also, there are a couple of wonderful spots to visit with your dog, one of them being Kent’s Point. This dog-friendly walk is located just off of Monument Road in Orleans. The walk is easy and great for people of any age. On top of that, there is handicapped parking access down the trailhead for people who do not want to walk from the main parking lot.
Walk a little further and up the hill. It is not very steep and makes for a pleasant walk with a fantastic view over the shoreline and the silent boats bobbing on the waves. It is best to stay at the top and not head down to the beach as it is somewhat rocky. There's also a spectacular view near the Pilgrim Monument at the top of Cape Cod Bay.
