Take a Winter Tram Ride to Wash Woods at False Cape State Park
Mark you calendar for a special opportunity to take tram tour of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park during the winter. Since the leaves are off the trees and the sun isn’t creating a white glare, this is the prefect time to do some great landscape, birding, wildlife, and outdoor photography.
Normally, tram tours are available from April through October due to wildlife management restrictions within Back Bay NWR. However, as part of a special outreach initiative and through a partnership between BackBay NWR and False Cape State park, we are offering winter tram tours twice a month.
The tram will travel through the refuge and the park, stopping at the historic Wash Wood community. Visitors will then take a 1-mile (round-trip) hike through the dune to the church and cemetery site where the steeple and gravestones remain.
Weather is forecast is the mid-40’s so bring a thermos of hot cider of hot chocolate, bundle up in layers, wear comfortable shoes, pack the binoculars, and DON’T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!!
