There are many ways to explore all the fascinating history Chatham has to offer.
Morris Island Nature Trail
Wikis Way, Morris Island, Chatham
A nature trail starting from the visitor center of The Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge loops through the Wildlife Refuge property on Morris Island. There are several trail markers and informational plaques along the route. The trail starts to the left of the parking area, at a walkway that passes the restrooms. Watch the tides - for a couple of hours around high tide, the beach at the bottom of the stairway is submerged in several inches of water.
The Antenna Field Trail is behind the Operations Building (Museum) at the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center. It is a winding path through the flora and fauna of Cape Cod with interpretive signs identifying and describing the station's antennas. Some of the antennas are original, some replicas of those which had been used by WCC (the designation of the radio station headquartered in the Museum building), and some of them are in operation today for communication with ham-radio operators around the world.
