Phoenix Bike Trail

Good but short

July, 2020 by jadsmith001

This is a 4 mile rail trail that is in ok condition for road bikes with a few cracks in it. The eastern end is under construction. A pretty path going through woodland, farms and overlooking marshes. Very quiet on a hot July weekend

Nauset Trail

I enjoyed riding this trail. lots of twists and turns ups and down small hills. You start at salt pond visitor center and end up at coast guard beach. Very scenic views there. Trail has some scenic views when you go over the bridge very pretty.

Province Lands Bike Trail

Surprised and delighted

July, 2020 by katepipa

Wow! Wasn’t expecting this ride after biking other trails on Cape Cod. Felt like I was out West with the hilly terrain and sparse vegetation mixed with sand in some places. I would say not for the leisurely cycler, but some wonderful ups and downs with some narrow curves in places. I went near dusk and it wasn’t crowded at all, and got to witness the sky changing colors prior to sunset. Bug spray is recommended!

Nauset Trail

A little bumpy (roots under pavement) and hilly but a nice way to reach Coast Guard Beach by bike, especially if coming from the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Nice boardwalk by Nauset Bay.

Cape Cod Rail Trail

Marked as CCRT bc other trails in the area.

June, 2020 by patrick.harber

I went down to the Cape from Boston. Apple Maps put me in South Dennis to start. I was able to find a spot right away, although the lot was close to full. I quickly came across the first intersection of many where the path crosses the road cars drive on. That happens about 10-15 times in the first twelve miles. The path itself is pretty well maintained. I stopped at mile 12 to go to the beach, mainly because I couldn’t find the trail and the beach was close by. And the beach has bike lockers. After a quick dip, I turned around and came back. Lastly, I averaged 15mph on my bike and no one passed me. That’s just to say it’s more casual.

Cape Cod Canal Bikeway

check the weather!

June, 2020 by breebrasil

It was a beautiful, easy ride from the bay to the point, and a hardcore workout on the way back! You see, it was fine weather with the wind to our back from the bay, but as soon as we hit the point, it started raining and we were heading into the wind in the way back, so it was. It an easy ride, but sure was a great workout!! Definitely check the weather when you are headed there- it was sunny and warm at home, but 63 and foggy when we arrived...tho no prediction of rain . We’re definitely going back again.
