The Cape Cod Rail Trail follows a former railroad right-of-way for 22 miles through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet. Its paved surface, few hills, and well-marked automobile crossings make it ideal for cyclists. The trail has a wide unpaved shoulder on one side to accommodate horseback riding, walkers, and runners.There are many opportunities to get off the trail and visit a beach.

great for a long bike ride. At the beginning of the trail in Dennis you go by the back of some businesses but the majority of the way is beautiful. Well traveled all year long.

One of the best and easy bike trails I've done. Its scenic and paved. The road is wide enough for pedestrians and bikers to share the road without incident. Love this ride! :)
