Beginning at 12 p.m. (noon) on Thursday, August 3, 2023, a portion of the Chatham section of Nauset Beach (aka North Beach) will open to Oversand Vehicle (OSV) travel to all permit holders with the following limitations:
• Front beach travel only from the Town Line (Trail 6) to Trail 8 (flagpole).
• The Inner Trail remains closed.
• South of Trail 8 to the Point (Inlet) area remains closed due to unfledged Piping Plover chicks and incubating Least Tern nests.
Staff are monitoring nesting and fledging status daily and further updates will be forthcoming.
All Regulations regarding restrictions on access to endangered species habitat areas, dogs, and other Beach Regulations remain in full force.
Your cooperation is appreciated in maintaining beach access.
