Qué harás

Meet guests at the opening of the sand dunes Trail. I will give a brief overview of the topography and ensure guests are hydrated and prepared for this moderate to strong hike into the dunes. As we begin, I will discuss the geological formation of the Cape and how the dunes were formed over a million years ago. Throughout the tour, I will be discussing Interesting folk lore of pirate ships, mooncussers , The famous “lady of the dunes” and Hell Town! All along the way, I will be telling interesting stories of artists, and town characters who once lived in the “dune shacks” I will be discussing cultural and historical facts of the creation of the Provincelands National Park and artists who fought to save the dunes from hotel and marina development! I will discuss the life-saving stations of the 1700 and 1800's along with the historical significance and forming of the U.S. Coast Guard. (The hike will take 45 to 60 minutes to reach the !st shack) Along the tour we will be placing markers to ensure an easy and safe return. Guests will have the opportunity to linger within the beautiful natural scenery the dunes provide. (For afternoon tours, Please allow time to return before sunset)

I've been guiding guests on tours In Provincetown for five years. My tours provide cultural and historical information of the town and surrounding landscape. My tour includes history, art, culture and fitness. I am well versed in the areas unique topography which consists of over 60k acres of high sand dunes, vegetation and wildlife! You'll learn about the Provincelands National Seashore from both a historical and political perspective as well learning a fascinating story about how local Provincetown artists fought to save this beautiful landscape from overwhelming development and it's final designation as a National Park by JFK in 1961. Along the way, I will provide unique facts and mysterious folklore of yester year including "mooncussers" shipwrecks and pirates! As this is a hike, good-very good physical condition a must!

Dónde estarás

We will be visiting the Historical and culturally significant "Dune Shacks" of The Provincelands National Park; Cape Cod National Seashore.
