    We took the Trail to Orleans, full North with a hook to the NP of Cape Cod Seashore... Grandiose! Whether on the trail or in the National Park, it is rather easy, no particular difficulty and you will discover beautiful landscapes. Attention however, unlike some Trails in the USA, there no facilities on the way and no fountains to water.
