Shining Sea Bikeway

Nice recreational ride or walk

August, 2016 by searay97

I think the trail is great for riding or walking. I finally ended up parking in North Falmouth on County Road. Parking at Depot Ave seems easy too. I found it hard to find the parking on Oyster Pond Road and Elm Road. Woods Hole does not have much street parking if you plan to use the trail in the summer. Overall, I thought the trail was great. Nice scenic areas: the bogs, marshes, ponds and woodlands.

Cape Cod Rail Trail

Cape Cod Rail Trail

August, 2016 by jimwalent

I biked the Cape Cod Rail trail today. No facilities I the trail or on the Chatham. Be careful on the Chatham end as the trail shares local roads and isn't marked on the road. Also crossing some streets yo have to go over a curb. Overall I liked the trail, but there are better trails on Cape Cod

Shining Sea Bikeway

Simply a nice walkway/bikeway

July, 2016 by jlpcpa

If you park in North Falmouth or Woods Hole, you have almost an 11 mile end to end trail. A 22-mile round trip is well worth the time to get there as so many other trails are much shorter. I enjoy running and land paddling on the trail. I've never found it overcrowded, and there are some really nice views along the way.

Cape Cod Rail Trail

Great trail

July, 2016 by speter

I biked this trail 3 times in one week doing the entire 44 mile out and back. This trail is good for bicyclists of all experience. There are a number of starting point the two main being at Wellfleet and S. Dennis where there is ample parking.

At about the mid-point is Nickerson State Park where there are restrooms and water available.

The trail is a nature lovers delight with its many changes of woodland, marshland, etc.

Province Lands Trail

beautiful trail!

It doesn't get better than this!

Shining Sea Bikeway

AWESOME trail

April, 2016 by jgb223

Beautiful, quiet flat ride along the seashore. You can even bike to Falmouth center. Perfect if you like the beaches and ocean. Great condition.

Cape Cod Canal Bikeway

Short Ride

April, 2016 by votsek

I was disappointed in this ride because the distance given is 13 miles, but that is round trip. When I do training rides I usually like a distance on the order of 25 miles. I also drove almost two hours to get to the trailhead near the Massachusetts Maritime Academy.

The trail is not a total bust. The northern trail is very suitable for a family outing. You can spend time at Scusset Beach for a picnic or snack before heading back to the trailhead. There are racks where you can lock your bikes while exploring the dunes and beach.

Be courteous and cautious because the trail has a lot of pedestrian and bicycle traffic.

Shining Sea Bikeway

Beautiful Day For A Bike Ride

September, 2015 by capejohn

The Shining Sea Bikeway has been undergoing some repairs, most of which have been completed. There are a handful of bumps on this 10 mile trail that have minimal effect on the bike ride.

To make this ride much more enjoyable one can leave the trail and ride along the ocean on quiet Falmouth streets. There is an abundance of spectacular sights, that slow the rider often, to take photos. There are also some crazy sights on the path itself. For instance there is a camp ground with three very large tepees and a working soda machine sitting all by itself kind of in the middle of nowhere.

Wood's Hole at the end of the path is a typical quaint New England coastal town offering a variety of lunch choices. Naturally lobstah and chowdah are offered at most places. My preferred lunch spot is the Wood's Hole Oceanographic institute cafeteria where one can rub elbows with scientist from all over the world. Some famous and some (most) not so.

Today's ride is also written up with a link to photos at the link below.

Shining Sea Bikeway

Not in the best shape

September, 2015 by rdsull9195

Between the many bumps in the path from tree roots, to a detour on the path, The Cape Cod Canal path is a much better ride. Shining Sea Path is good for a recreational ride, not a good cardio ride. Too many stops as you cross roadways. Nice riding by the cranberry bog and ocean but pales compared to the views at the Cape Cod canal. No desire to ride the Shining Sea pathway again.

Shining Sea Bikeway

Great Trail

September, 2015 by rishikeshdesai

Great trail with nice views of marshy land and beach front. Some places have rough patches due to tree roots. Good parking places and overall a great trail.

Phoenix Bike Trail

Hidden Views

September, 2015 by mcgeever

This was a good ride with a hidden surprise at the end. In Mattapoisett there is an off road section through the woods. This section was rocky and only dirt but was my favorite part. There is a bridge not far from the paved road where the wildlife show was amazing. The Osprey were catching fish the whole time I was there. There were many other types of birds and animals also along the ride. It was a fun time.

Shining Sea Bikeway

Great Trail

August, 2015 by mcgeever

I rode the trail today and loved it! This trail has just about everything you would need or want to see along the way. There are so many things to discover and areas to explore, you would need to take the ride several times. It is great for everyone! My favorite by far in this area. I can't wait to go back again.
