We like to ride the bike trail from Herring Cove to Beech Forest then up to the visitors center and back to the cove, like counter clockwise. This can be a busy place so you need to pay attention as some of the corners are sharp and you don't want to stray in to the oncoming lane. Go early in... More

We rented bikes from Gale Force and headed out through Herring Cove Beach and the trails beyond. By the time we got to the top of yet another mammoth hill in the hot sun, we checked the trail map and opted for Beech Forest, hoping there would be some much-needed shade. It was the perfect spot for a sunny, warm... More

Beautiful Nature walk! Probably the best in Provincetown! Recommend this walk for anyone who wants some peace and quiet to walk alone or with a companion. Might see some geese and other creatures! :)

A beautiful ride. don't let anyone tell you the cape is flat because this ride is hilly. Nothing that even a beginner can't overcome but never the less hilly.

I want to reiterate what I wrote earlier about the Provincelands Trail which I consider Beech Forest is a part. It is refreshing to be surrounded by nature, hear the birds chirpping and just the beauty of the foliage.

pretty awful, especially if you bike in other beautiful places like Georgia or S Carolina. A few parts are really neat, but mostly it is riding through the woods, might as well be in Georgia. The worst is in the summer there is a 1 mile stretch where these awful flies are constantly in your face buzzing around your ears... More

Paved trails that are well mapped and well marked. A few steep hills that you can easily walk your bike up if the peddling proves too difficult. A stop at the beach and the ship wreck rescue museum are good recommended. Water fountain, changing facilities /rest room there. Friendly park services staff. Bike racks, air hoses along the way. Beautiful... More

A very quiet nature area that is great in the early morning or late afternoon. Easy to find with easy parking. Fun bike path. The best part is the bird watching!
