Cape Cod Rail Trail
Cape Cod Rail Trail information
The mother of all Cape bicycle trails, the Cape Cod Rail Trail (Dennis), runs 22 glorious miles through forest, past cranberry bogs and along sandy ponds ideal for a dip. This rural route, formerly used as a railroad line, is one of the finest bike trails in all of New England. The path begins in Dennis on MA 134 and continues through Nickerson State Park and the Cape Cod National Seashore all the way to South Wellfleet. There's a hefty dose of Olde Cape Cod scenery en route and you'll have opportunities to detour into the villages for lunch or sightseeing. Bicycle rentals are available from a kiosk at the trailhead in Dennis and at Nickerson State Park.
