We started the trail in East Dennis and enjoyed the scenic ride! Easy ride, well marked- this trail is well maintained compared to other trails we've ridden. Great fall day ride!
I enjoyed this bikeway very much. You end at a beach what can be better than that. Was the right amount of challenge but if you go at a slower pace can be peaceful with plenty to see
My friend and I began our bike ride at the Buzzards Bay Recreation Area. We biked the entire length of the canal, to Scusset Beach. (about 7 miles) We parked our bikes and walked to the beach, took a swim then headed back. On the way back we stopped at the Herring Run parking lot, crossed the street and had an amazing Lobster Roll at Barlow's Clam Shack! It was a perfect day! There is an amazing splash pad at the Buzzards Bay Recreation Area, perfect for families! And its free! I am going to bring my grandson next time for sure!
We have biked this trail almost every year for the past 12 years. We plan our entire summers and cottage location on the proximity to this trail.
Biked the trail out and back on 8/5/19. New west end is smooth as butter; older east and northern parts have root bumps but are fine. Consider riding your hybrid, gravel, or mountain ride instead of your skinny bike. There are many road crossings but the Cape Cod drivers are amazingly respectful. They all stop. Be very very careful anyway, of course. 5 star trail.
This is an almost level ride from North Falmouth to Woods Hole. Many shady spots along the way, as wall as lemonade stands, restaurants, and shaved ice. Views include cranberry bogs, marshlands, and the beach. The trail is well maintained, and has many miles of smooth new asphalt. Locals have added some decorations and artwork along the way.
This trail was great. We parked at the depot lot- very rutted and busy but big. We ate lunch at the Station Grill just across the lot before we rode. That is about 4miles in from the end point in the woods hole area. We rode towards that way for views of the ocean. It was flat, fresh paved w/ road crossing well marked. The art murals were really neat. There was a port o potty along the rt also a picnic area and drinking fountain. We stopped and went down to the water in a rocky pebble beach area, most was private beach but it seemed those on bikes were welcomed; cars take up road space bikes don’t. It was very hot so we did not do the entire trail but will definitely make another trip to go back. The small restaurant where we parked was a great point due to bathroom use, friendly owner, outdoor tables, cornhole games on the out of service tracks, a water mister and the super fresh made to order simple sandwich’s with the utmost quality.
I have done the CCRT many, many times-the last being in early June , 2019. This trail was one of the best in the Northeast for a long time. Now, however, things look like they need some work. The tree roots are numerous between Dennisport and Harwich. Every 10 feet there is a jar to the body. After doing a lot of trails on the East Coast, especially in Florida, I see where the old time trails are remiss. The Southern trails tend to have rest areas along the trail where the rider can relax and get water. Usually , playgrounds and parking lots are there also. The CCRT is a real attraction to vacationers and bike enthusiasts. Putting some money into it would have a good return on investment.
I had wanted to do this trail since I was a kid. I took my family out on it and completed the entire trail in two days. I documented the entire trek. The best stops to make start in Orleans. If you want a perspective of what it is like here is a video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYPiNHN9P1g
I also extended the end and biked to the Beachcomber in Wellfleet. totally worth getting a beer at the end.
The extension mentioned is now open. It's beautiful and well worth the ride. Early to mid October is a great month for the western portion because you can catch Cranberry bogs being harvested. The views from the Bass River bridge are terrific too.
The Western section of the trail is not yet all open. The description here is correct, but the trail map includes sections that are not yet open. The trail is open between North Maine St. and Peter Homer Memorial Park. It is finished but not yet open where the new bridge crosses over the Bass River. At Station Ave the new very large parking lot is complete and open. The far western section from Peter Homer Park (Forest Road) has not been constructed but shows on the trail map.
smooth enough for rollers, large enough also.
Markings on the ground every half mile with the distance from start (in both direction)
Parking on both side of the 6.5 Miles trail.
People fishing on th side, catching sea monsters ...
