Cape Cod Canal Bikeway

Awesome trail!

July, 2021 by tsyrell

Can’t ask for a better trail to ride. I love the coastal views!

Cape Cod Rail Trail

Cape Cod ROOT Trail

June, 2021 by robaust10

Way too many 2 to 4 inch root bumps.
Bring a mountain Bike.
Or one with massive shocks.
Be careful of your wrists
From Orleans to Wellfleet there must be over 250. Maybe MA should give some Fed funds to removal and steel root barriers

Old Colony Rail Trail

Great ride!

June, 2021 by ollied

Rented bikes and rode this trail from the terminus in Chatham. What a great trail. Completely paved and well maintained. Mostly level with some slight inclines here and there. Nice leisurely ride. Going past the airport was neat because I was able to see a plane takeoff and another land on the different legs of the ride.

Old Colony Rail Trail

Nice morning ride

June, 2021 by don.sauvigne

June 2021: Jumped on the trail at the parking lot at Rt 137 and Rt 28 in Chatham, which about the midpoint of this trail. Went west to the terminus, the junction with the CCRT, about 3.7 miles, mostly flat, very scenic and quiet. From there, I turned around and did the 8 miles to Chatham, then back ~4 miles to my car. Highlights: many well marked road crossings, and just short hops on roads. For my ride, at about the 12 mile point, returning from Chatham, there is a nice breakfast stop at the Chatham airport (Hanger B) I didn't go all the way to the Chatham terminus, since the traffic was building this Saturday morning. Kudos for the air and tool station that is situated at the midpoint, where I parked, at RT 137 and Rt 28 junction!

Cape Cod Rail Trail

out of state visitor

May, 2021 by Elsa

Lovely trail excellent weather. Rosie on a Thursday before Memorial Day weekend Need more bathroom stops. One is not enough. Currently a portion of the trail is closed due to construction with no mention when it will be completed.

Shining Sea Bikeway

Absolutely Beautiful Trail!

May, 2021 by joyce.meaden

I agree will all of the others, this is a BEAUTIFUL trail. It is all asphalt, and flat. The views are breathtaking!

We are glad we took the day trip and drove an hour+ to get there.

We parked at Depot St, and there was plenty of parking (May 13, 2021 late morning)

Cape Cod Canal Bikeway

Beautiful but windy

May, 2021 by christaylor2427

Check the weather for this one, it’s always beautiful and I come here often for inline skating. The wind can play a huge factor! If you’re looking for a good challenge skating this is a good spot. Often times it will balance out, Windy and tough one way but smooth and quick the other. Overall I enjoying coming here and start at the Sagamore bridge, go down to the train bridge, make a loop at buzzards bay park, then make my way back.

Bridle Trail

Quiet, hidden trail. No obstructions and could navigate well on snowpacked gravel trail. Was a relaxing walk as there were no unleashed dogs or unmasked people.

Phoenix Bike Trail

Pleasant surprise at end of trail

November, 2020 by maddyk

I started at the historic fort phoenix on green street admiring the different architecture of the homes. Ride was easy, not crowded, just a bit too short. But a pleasant surprise after talking with fellow bikers. At the end of the phoenix trail, take a right onto Mattapoisett neck road, 1/2 mile on left is a cove, picnic tables overlooking the harbor. Continuing on Mattapoisett neck road 1.5 miles into a cul de sac, on the right there is a wooded trail you can bike to the water with a view of Brandt island.
The only reason i gave it a 3 was because i like a longer bike trail

Cape Cod Rail Trail

A great trail for all riders despite numerous road crossings

September, 2020 by robert.richter89

I recently rode almost the entire Cape Cod Rail Trail starting in Yarmouth at Peter Homer Park and ending at its terminus in Wellfleet. The entire path is paved, mostly shaded, in near perfect condition and is wide enough to accommodate many people using the trail. There are many trailheads that allow you to ride the trail for as long as you'd like. Orleans is a perfect stop to get something to eat or visit the bike shop there.

There is one short on road section that was very well marked and offered a wide bike lane to protect riders. There are numerous road crossings throughout the trail most of which are quiet two lane roads that were very lightly trafficked even on a Saturday but there are a few that were busier intersections. I must say that all of the drivers were beyond respectful to the trail riders, some of the best drivers I have interacted with and I have rode trails in many states along the east coast.

The trail was very busy on a lovely Fall afternoon, just be courteous and patient when passing and you will enjoy the Cape Cod Rail Trail!

Province Lands Bike Trail

Awesome!

September, 2020 by kcrispin100

Did this trail 3 times in two days that is how great it is!

Hanover Branch Rail Trail

Love this Trail

September, 2020 by danielle.bullock.980

This is one of my favorite trails. It’s a nice paved trail that crosses a few streets, an intersection, The Rockland Police Dept, and is surrounded mostly by trees.
