This is ALL sealed, perfectly safe for anyone with common sense that rides within their abilities. We went around anti clockwise with an extra loop that included the Beech Forest which is well worth doing. With stops at both beaches as well as the visitor centre it took 5 hours of easy riding, stopping to take photos, walk along the... More

A great way to beat the Cape Cod traffic! Just the right amount of challenge and takes you to the beach! Can't beat that. If you like to bike, this is a must! The trail is in great shape (especially compared to the others in the National Seashore). Do it!

When we are going to the cape travelling on route 6 and route 6A into P-town is a must do everytime on our list. It allows you the opportunity to take in the view and the smell of the sea as you stroll into town. In the summer you can smell the bougainvillea which brings very strong memories of good... More

Go on a Nation Park tour with a ranger. (And if you go this year, wish them a happy birthday! The NPS is 100! in 2016) We took the free hike with the ranger and learned so much about the landscape and how it's changed over the last 300 years. It's beautiful - but walking in loose sand can be... More

The views of the ocean, dunes and forest are wonderful, and the path is very well maintained. There are some hills, so just be forewarned! I was a little overoptimistic, having not ridden a bike in years. Regardless, would certainly do it again. A beautiful challenge not to be missed - especially the visitors center outlook! You could spend the... More

A wonderful area to see everything from sand dunes to marshlands to ocean. Bike and pedestrian friendly paths throughout the area make it ideal for active people. You can drive through much of it too.

This is NOT a rail trail. The ascent/descent is slightly over 2000 ft which means it is HILLY! Really; low gear, heart-pumping, hilly. If you are not at least a regular bike rider, you will be surprised. In addition, there is sand, water and minor bumps on the paved trail that can make it REALLY challenging. GO SLOW. WEAR A...
