As others have mentioned: Pros - well maintained, relatively flat. Cons - the 'scenery' is 98% forest, minimal water views. As avid riders in New England, this was one path left on our 'to do' list. We highly anticipated the ride. With each passing mile,...More

Many access points, well marked, paved, good trail maps and support along the way. I was surprised at the bike shops offing help. Very scenic, gentle slope if any slope at all. Lots of places to stop along or just off the trail.

The CCRT offers fun rides wherever you join the trail. I saw lots of wildlife, swans, muskrat, etc. There were not a lot of people on the trail at this time of the year, but I imagine that in season it must be crowded.

One of the top tourist draws to the Cape, and rightly so. This paved, dedicated pedestrian trail currently runs from Wellfleet to Dennis, with a spur leading to Chatham. Re-surfaced around 2010, most is in excellent condition. Road crossings are well defined, one of the...More

It depends on wether you are North or South. Dennis or Brewster on the trail is your best bet. In Orleans center there are two shops as well.
