The Atlantic White Cedar Swamp Trail is about a mile long. It passes over soft sand, pine forest floor, a boardwalk, and some stairs. On Route 6 in South Wellfleet, watch for the Marconi Station Area sign, then the Marconi Site sign, then the White Cedar Swamp sign. The Marconi Site is where Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi set up shop in the early 1900s on the high cliffs overlooking what is now called Marconi Beach. His ambitious project was to send wireless transmissions across the Atlantic. In 1903, from this station in Wellfleet, Marconi succeeded in relaying historic messages between the U.S. President and the King of England. A model of the station sits at the original site. Nearby is the beautiful and popular Marconi Beach.
