Cape Cod National Seashore was set aside to preserve its natural and cultural resources. Opportunities to explore and experience these resources abound, and we ask that you do so in ways that will leave them unimpaired.

Regulations have been established to protect resources and provide for visitor safety. Please obey them.

· Natural and cultural features are protected by federal law and must not be disturbed.
· Do not pick flowers. Metal detectors are prohibited. Taking, feeding, or harassing wildlife is prohibited.

· Keep trails, roadsides, and other areas clean. Use trash receptacles or take your trash away with you.

· Oversand vehicles are allowed only on designated sand routes, and a permit is required. Indiscriminate dune-driving is prohibited.

· Wear seat belts while operating or riding in a vehicle.

· Pets must be leashed and kept under control at all times. Leashes must not exceed 2 meters (6 feet). Pet are not permitted in public buildings, on lifeguard—protected beaches, or on nature trails.

· Stay on established path to avoid trampling vegetation and to reduce exposure to ticks and poison ivy.

· Remain out of areas that are closed for wildlife protection.

· Open fires are not allowed except when authorized by a permit, which
can be obtained at visitor centers. Permits are not required for stoves using manufactured fuels, or for charcoal grills when used in designated picnic areas at Beech Forest, Pilgrim Heights, Doane Rock, and Great Island, or on sandy or rocky beaches bordering tidewater.

· Public nudity is prohibited.

Safety Precautions
· Poison ivy and ticks are prevalent. Learn to identify them and reduce exposure by remaining on designated paths.

· Sand collapse easily. Climbing slopes and digging holes above knee level is prohibited.

· At the ocean, be alert for riptides and underwater obstacles. Keep children within reach. Signs designate lifeguard-protected beaches.

· Be wary of too much sun exposure.

· Glass containers, rafts, rubber tubes, and mask and snorkels are prohibited on lifeguard-protected beaches.

· When biking on designated bike trails, wear a helmet (required for riders 12 and younger), ride single file to the right, don't speed and be alert for hills, sharp turns, other users, and windblown sand. If you have an unfamiliar bike, check brakes, gears, and steering before entering a trail.

· In summer, be alert for heavy traffic, bicyclists, and pedestrians on narrow roads.
