This bike trail is generally flat from the town of Dennis to Wellfleet for about 32 miles. You will pass lakes and marshes also cranberry bogs. There are many parking areas along the way in addition to places to stop and eat. Bike rental shops are numerous if you don't have your own.

Had a fantastic ride on the trail - it is well paved and suitable to both road and mountain bikes. Quiet a few grade crossings of streets, but the cars are generally very good about stopping. The train mostly runs through the woods away from roads, and even incorporates a bicycle-only rotary. Keep an eye out for coyotes and an... More

The Rail Trail is peaceful, quiet and scenic. Other bikers are polite and accommodating when passing. Having to cross several roads can be a bit chaotic and scary, but still worth the ride.

As avid rail trail riders, we really enjoyed this one.. definitely worth it. Great views, lots of places to stop for snacks and bike support and the trails are well-maintained. A bit longer for us than usual, but we may do it again sometime.

This is your typical paved over rail trail that's very flat and easy biking. It's well marked & maintained. Don't get me wrong, there were certain parts that were very scenic, but there's a lot of boring parts too. Maybe I expected too much, but I assumed being on the Cape thought there would be more openings along the trails... More

We got on at Nickerson State Park where they have bathrooms and went all the way down to Arnolds Ice Cream. It was about 7 miles each way and it was mostly flat all the way. I really wanted to make it to the end, but the kids could not. There was not much to look at but it was... More

We came to Cape Cod specifically to ride the rail trails. This was a wonderful trail, paved and well maintained. We were here in the offseason and there were still lots of folks riding. I'd hate to think how busy it is in summer. But everyone was courteous. A real shock to the system to find that drivers here actually... More

The rail trail is one of the best ways to see the Cape. It goes past ponds with private mini beaches, fishing ponds, ice cream stands, delis, restaurants, villages like Chatham and Brewster, and of course you come very close to some beaches where you only have to ride down a side road to get to them. Bikes have the... More
