On this segment of the USGS topographical map of the Sandwich quadrangle, we can see the entrance to Scorton Harbor from Cape Cod Bay, the east branch of Scorton Creek behind the barrier beach, and the west branch of Scorton Creek extending behind the beachfront cottages. We also can see the main channel of Scorton Creek winding its way through the marsh to the bridge at Route 6A, shown here in red. South of Route 6A, the creek diverges into several tributaries through the marsh, one of which reaches Jones Lane at the right edge of the map, whence it flows on to meet the Great Marsh of Barnstable.
