The Trails of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History
THE LEE BALDWIN TRAIL (1 mile) starts across Route 6A on Museum land that meanders through the famous Stony Brook Valley. It travels through a brackish salt marsh across the Stony Brook into a unique beech forest. Our naturalist guides will point out major plant species in the progressively more freshwater habitat.
HERRING RUN Between mid-April and early-June, Stony Brook becomes a herring run, connecting these ocean-dwelling alewives with their freshwater spawning grounds.
No dogs are allowed on Museum property, year round! Please use Drummer Boy parking and use the public trail access, 50 feet west of our mailbox on 6A, to walk your leashed dog on the public trail, October 1 - April 30, yearly. No dogs are allowed between May 1 and September 30.
FIELD TRIP LOGISTICS FOR GROUPS RESERVATIONS Reservations are required for all school and adult groups requesting field guides for the trails. Please call (508)896-3867.
