“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Facilities are well kept up. Ample parking and access to a great walk along the canal.
Gotta try Sweet Caroline's Cafe right up the street.

“Nice View”

Ihave been here many times and it's fun to watch the bridge come
down nd to watch the train go over it. They have made some nice
changes to the area. New restrooms.

“Great place to bicycle, roller blade or just walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2012

Both sides of the Cape Cod Canal have a very nice trail, and the Railroad Bridge is an unusual bridge to say the least. We would have loved to have seen the bridge come down for a train to cross, but had to be somewhere else.

“What a show !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Look up the schedule for the Cape Trains. You can park for free and watch the bridge come down, see the train go over the bridge and see it go back up. An unusual site tha should not be missed.
