Great bike ride! Well mapped with severa traill alternatives!

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... read more

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!

This is a fantastic bike path just outside of downtown Provincetown. Be prepared for a good workout. The little "hills" can be a pain to get up. But, the down-hill part is fun! Be careful though, lots of blind curves and there are some areas where sand has been blown across the path. Not to mention the large number of... More

Give you the ability to see what Provincetown must have looked like before the forests were used for construction and firewood.

Lovely peaceful stroll through a Beech forest with several small ponds decorated with blooming lilies.. a pretty scene but in June mosquitoes live their too. Had to beat a hasty retreat.

I love this area. it is so beautiful and has lots of trails! We spotted a lot of Lady Slippers, which were cool. Watch out for the mosquitoes! And watch the Canadian Geese.

I took a stroll for the first time through the Beech Forest Trail and was fortunate enough to come on a day when there were no bicyclists on the trail (they tend to think they have the right of way in Ptown and will run you down if you aren't quick enough). Contrary to the photo shown here, the trail... More

Definitely take a stroll through the trees and hear the hundreds of birds singing. There are beautiful vistas and hidden lakes along the way

This was our favorite hike during our very short visit to the area. The chickadees came very close in one area of the trail. There are names in front of some of the main trees. The hike was enjoyable because of the variety of trees and plants making up the forest. The one thing that can be done to improve... More
