Lovely fall hike! We hiked at high tide so the the salt marsh boardwalk was a few inches under water. You can bring your dogs after October 1! Nice variety of environments

Easy trail, great for our dog! Be sure to check for ticks at the end, our dog had one.

Beautiful trail with long stretches in and amongst mother nature. It couldn't get more tranquil than this. Tree canopies, mountains bike paths that branch off the trail, ponds and an abundance of wildlife.

We rode bikes, beautiful trail!

A nice ride from Little Campastranos bike shop in Eastham to Nickerson State Park in Brewster. 12.2 miles round trip, a nice 2 hour ride with a cute stop off in Orleans town for an ice cream break if you so choose. There is an area that the bike path was on the street with cars for a short bit while you connected with the oath again so if traveling with small children on hikes just be cautious. Overall a nice amount of shade and a good workout. Mostly flat terrain all paved trail.

very nice ride, well marked, good road condition. we rode from Harwich to Chatham on a Saturday and there wasn't much traffic on the trail. Made for a very pleasant ride. Quite a few road crossings to watch for, these give some good opportunities for exploring towns and rest stops. One spot even had an air pump and tools if adjustments are needed.

Would hike here again. Appreciated other reviews about checking tides. We parked at Drummer Boy park and walked up the sidewalk a couple of tenths and then followed sign for Wing Island nailed on a tree. It is just before the Nature museum.

Nice walk to the Cape Cod bay, allow time to explore the beach area Park at Drummer Boy park and walk to trail head.

Nice for a quick mostly level walk outside. You can double the length by continuing on the alternate trail. Great for young kids too

This is one of my favorites! It's a great walk to do with young children; however, not a stroller friendly walk so if you have really young children make sure you have your baby carrier on. We happened to have done the walk on an overcast, foggy day and it was just as enjoyable!

Very well marked and maintained with some stores and Cafe's within reach during your ride. There are both walkers and bikers sharing the oath which could get busy in populated areas but nothing to stop anyone from enjoying the day. We road from Dennis Bike Rentals to Nickerson State Park and back which was about 18 to 20 miles round trip.

Beautifully paved trail. The last 10 miles were hard but absolutely amazing. I saw a snake, a turtle and lot and lot of chipmunks. I did this all the way to end beyond Dennis 0 mark and came back. Somehow my recording shows 47.1 miles total. I took a detour to fort hill so I have stopped the recording and started again when I am back on CCRT. Now I ended up with two recordings.

This was a pleasant walk through woods, marshes, and beach. We walked for about an hour. We arrive two hours after low tide but still had to take off our shoes and socks to cross a marshy area to get from the beach to the wooden stairs to continue on the path.

A very pleasant walk through woods, near marshes, and the Bass River (which looks like a lake). We saw several folks with their dogs and the dogs happily went for a dip in the river which was fun to see. Lots of nice views for photos.

Pleasant little walk with nice views of Bass River.

Great for little ones

nice short walk with the pup! plenty of places for them to swim.

Very fun bike ride. Lots of places to rest, picnic.

A lovely ramble alongside the salt flats! We saw no one during our walk but did manage to see beautiful trees, flowers, and wildlife. Had a nice sit on one of the many benches too. Cool muck to smell.

one of the best trails ever❤

Nice bike ride down the Cape Cod Rail Trail with my daughter and her awesome friends. Had to rent one additional bike so did that at Barb's Bike Shop which is very close to the trail. It was a little drizzly at first but on the way back the sun was shining. The Chatham end can be a bit confusing as you weave in and around roads. Very nice over all, highly recommended.

Nice wooded trails with water views in many areas.
