A great place smack in the middle of Cape Cod. Descent elevation changes & challenging climbs, but a lot of trails are flat but fun. A great place to get lost for an hour or a day.

Although the route depicted on this map is in the same conservation area as the "Trail of Tears", it is not the challenging mountain biking, trail running or hiking route that you may have heard about. This route starts off easy and flat and then climbs up and along one of the many ridges in the glacial moraine. One of the reviewers was correct that the elevation does not get higher that about 175 ft. This may be causing some confusion as to the title.

The Cape Cod NEMBA and the town of Barnstable have good maps of the entire area on their websites. If you're looking for a bit more challenging bike, run, or hike, the actual "Trail of Tears" is best accessed where the power lines cross the Service Rd. Just off exit 5 of Route 6 in West Barnstable.

I regularly run the trails in this area and love the diversity that can be found here. Whether I'm going for a easy, flat jaunt, a challenging hilly run, or a combination of the two, there are many trails that allow for that and I have yet to be bored!

"Trail of Tears?" I suppose it sounds more dramatic than "A Nice Walk in the Woods" which it is. I'm grateful that the Town of Barnstable and other groups have set aside land like this. It reminds me of what the Cape was like when I was a kid and it was rural and undeveloped outside of the main villages.
This was a pleasant walk and you can easily string together trails to get some distance.
