What makes Spruce Hill unique?
Hike & Day at the Beach Spruce Hill Beach is only accessible by a very long path. It will take you a few minutes to get to the beach, down a long path through the woods. It is a great little hike. It is about 4/10 of a mile from the parking lot to the beach. You get two adventures in one here, a hike through the woods and a day at a more secluded beach. A low area in the conservation area holds swamp azalea, viburnum and a stand of black gum. There are two paths, here: the one that goes straight to the beach and one that wanders through the woods.
How to find it? Spruce Hill sits behind a historic home owned by the Brewster Historical Society on Route 6A. The conservation area and path to the beach is unmarked from the road. If you didn’t know to look there, you’d never find it. See our Spruce Hill photo gallery below. Don’t be afraid to pull down the driveway. It looks like you might be intruding. The driveway is right next to the Cape Cod Sea Camps property.

We’ve lived in Brewster for almost four years and until a few days ago, we’d never heard of Spruce Hill. Find more great beaches of Cape Cod on Cape Cod Star.
