Three Bicycle Trails ~ Cape Cod Massachusetts
We had a blast riding our Mountain Bikes on our vacation down at Cape Cod.
We explored three different Bike Trails.
September 20, 2016 we rode our bikes on the Old Colony Rail Trail and the CCRT - Cape Cod Rail Trail starting in Harwich down to Nickerson State Park in Brewster. It poured on us. We do not have rain gear for our bikes. We made the best of it. The trails were paved in a wooded area. We saw Cranberry bogs and ponds..it was a great ride. Nickerson State Park had some huge hills to ride up and down. It was difficult for me,, I had to walk my bike up a few hills. This was a 21 mile bike ride,, the longest one I have done since getting my Mountain Bike Mid June 2016.
September 22, 2016 we rode our bikes on the Province Lands Bicycle Trail. We parked at the Provincetown Visitor Center. I absolutely loved this Bike Trail. You ride on a paved trail through the Sand Dunes.. WOW what a fun and beautiful bike ride. We rode out to Herring Cove, Race Point and Bennett Pond. It is marked as a Challenging Bike Path,, and it was. We rode 12 miles.
September 23, 2016 we rode our bikes on the Head of the Meadows Bicycle Trail. The trails are paved but very bumpy. It was a pretty ride but short.. only 2 miles out and 2 miles back.
We had a great time biking on Cape Cod.

Boston To Cape cod, Massachusetts
Cape Cod is a geographic cape extending into the Atlantic Ocean from the southeastern corner of mainland Massachusetts, in the northeastern United States. Its historic, maritime character and ample beaches attract heavy tourism during the summer months.
As defined by the Cape Cod Commission's enabling legislation, Cape Cod is conterminous with Barnstable County, Massachusetts. It extends from Provincetown in the northeast to Woods Hole in the southwest and is bordered by Plymouth to the northwest.
Since 1914, most of Cape Cod has been separated from the mainland by the Cape Cod Canal. The canal cuts 7 miles (11 km) roughly across the base of the peninsula, though small portions of the Cape Cod towns of Bourne and Sandwich lie on the mainland side of the canal. Two highway bridges cross the Cape Cod Canal: the Sagamore Bridge and the Bourne Bridge. In addition, the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge carries railway freight and limited passenger services onto the Cape. Cape territory is divided into 15 towns with many villages.
Cape Cod Bike Trails
One of the most enjoyable ways to see and experience the beauty of Cape Cod is on two wheels – on a bike! Cape Cod offers over 60 miles of breath-taking scenic trails for riders of all levels. Go places roads just won’t take you. Get an up-close look at nature in its purest form. All while traveling at your own pace with family, friends and fellow bike riders.
Cape Cod Canal Bike Paths
Before you even cross the bridge, there’s the Cape Cod Canal Bikeway offering over 7 miles of trails on BOTH sides of the mighty Cape Cod Canal. It’s a beautiful setting offering awe-inspiring views of the towering Bourne and Sagamore bridges and the endless boat traffic on the canal. Complete your ride in Sagamore and you’ll be steps away from Scusset Beach and the mouth of Cape Cod Bay at Scusset Harbor.
Shining Sea Bikeway
Another great option is Falmouth’s Shining Sea Bikeway. The northern end of this 11 mile bikeway is in North Falmouth. Hug the entire coast past Sippewissett Marsh, through nearby Falmouth Center, past ponds, Vineyard Sound beaches and Little Harbor. The southern end of the bikeway takes you right to the Steamship Authority parking lot in the charming village of Woods Hole.
Cape Cod Rail Trail
The longest ride on the Cape is the Cape Cod Trail Rail. This 22 mile trail follows the former railroad right-of-way through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet. This popular trail passes many local points of interest and several lakes offering many opportunities to get off the trail and visit a beach, picnic or grab an ice cream cone.
Cape Cod Nickerson State Park Bike Path
While in the Brewster area, you might want to head over to Nickerson State Park for a hilly, yet very scenic network of dedicated bike trails. This enjoyable 8 mile ride takes you through beautiful pine and fir tree forests and around ponds, lakes and bogs. It’s a great opportunity to see a unique coastal woodlands ecosystem.
Nauset Marsh Trail
Equally impressive is the Nauset Marsh Trail located in the National Seashore. This 3 mile round trip begins at Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Along the way you’ll enjoy large cedar, pine and oak forests and see panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean on your way to Coast Guard Beach.
Province Lands Trail
And last, but not least is the 7-1/4 mile Province Lands Trail. This hilly paved loop starts at the Province Lands visitor center in Provincetown and traverses much of the Province Lands’ 4,000 acres. Enjoy breathtaking marshland, endless dunes and water views along the way. A 2 mile trail extension will take you to Herring Beach, Race Point Beach and Bennet Pond.
So, the next time you set out to explore Cape Cod…consider doing it on two wheels. You might just find it to be “a most enjoyable” way to travel.
Mountain Biking West Barnstable Trails Cape Cod MA
West Barnstable Mountain Bike Trails in Cape Cod were totally fun. We took a trip up to Cape Cod in Massachusetts to get some beach time with the great whites. The swimming actually turned out to be pretty good. Calm clear waters that weren’t totally freezing. And for the first time ever – we discovered some great mountain bike trails. MTB in Cape Cod? Yep. And it was fun as shit too. We were focused on West Barnstable and the Trail of Tears. There’s a North and South side to that trail. Both are seriously good. If you like short tough ups with rocks and roots and extended technical downs – this place is for you. We rode it in the clockwise direction from the shooting range lot. There are also a bunch of miles of greens and blues out there to ride as well. Those are a little wider and pine needle covered with elevation up and down, but not as punchy and fast as the blacks. Bring your fat bikes and check them out next time you’re beachin’ in cape cod. As always thanks for watching and subscribe if you haven’t already.
Cape Cod Rail Trail Extension in Wellfleet to Route 6
State officials visited the old railroad bed today in Wellfleet where a new 2-mile section of the Cape Cod Rail Trail is planned to open in 2020. The visit was part of a state assessment of rare toad, turtle, moth and grass species to be affected with construction on the new trail. 12.3.18
The Cape Cod Rail Trail - Amazing Adventure from Dennisport to Wellfleet - Ride a Bike
It was family vacation time and this year we were going to conquer something I’ve been curious about since I was a kid
I had the map of this 22 mile trail from Dennisport to Wellfleet sitting on my desk for the past 6 months and vowed that the fam and I would complete this Family bike ride.
We loaded up the Jeep and headed to the trailhead at Dennisport it was okay, but in all honesty there wasn’t a real lot of scenery just a lot of woods and one cool tunnel. I could feel the group’s boredom building with each crank of the sprocket. We biked the 5 miles to the “Local Flavor” in Harwich. It was at that point I had to tell Chloe she had to do the same 5 miles back to the car. I wasn’t sure how little legs would handle it but she powered through and mad it 10 miles that day. It wasn’t easy for her and I realized that there was no way could put the entire fam through this trek to Wellfleet.
Vacation went on I felt like a failure everywhere we went. At a Cape league baseball game, failure. The cape cod scenic railroad, failure. And watching some guy blow a glass whale you guessed it…failure. Then something happened that put the wind beneath my wings.
Then something happened… Richie and I stopped in Barbs Bike shop and he spotted this wall. I told him if he wanted to sign it he’d have to finish the trail he told me if I bought him bike gloves he could definitely finish the trail. Well I set that carrot on the stick, went back home and told the wife about Plan B.
The girls left us in search of a Mani/Pedi and we were ready to man up and pedal. We grabbed some supplies and hit the trail. We breezed through Harwich past Long pond and after 3 miles stopped in the Brewster Bike shop, in order to get to take care of some business.
With the new gloves we rocketed 3miles to the border of Brewster and stopped for a snack and some scenery
“We’re at Namskasket Creek” heading into Orleans
We knocked out 2 more miles and played a little oversized Chess in Orleans Center.
I was really impressed with my companion. It was about 90 degrees that day and after 8 miles no complaints what so ever., just a lot of good conversation on the trail.
We decided to bust out another 6 miles to Arnold's Lobster and Clam Bar for a well-deserved lunch. This would be the last stop until we reached our final destination.
What I did not account for is that the Beachcomber is 3 miles away from off the trail down Ocean View Road.
That meant we out from the cover of the trees with the sun beating down on us, and worst of all we had hills to climb.
I was hoping those red cheeks were from exhaustion and not sunburn. Convincing him each hill was the last and convincing myself I applied enough sunblock on him. It was looking bleak and then finally.
WE REACHED THE BEACHCOMBER
We enjoyed the ocean then the family reunited. The girls were successful in their quest. but to make ours complete we had one last task to take care of.

A Cape Cod Province Lands Bike Ride
Take a bike ride with me on the Province Lands trail starting from the Cape Cod National Seashore visitor center riding to Herring Cove Beach and then to Race Point Beach. The trail is a 5.45 mile loop through forest and dunes with many hills. The path spur to Herring Cove is 1.1 mile and Race Point is 0.5 off the main path and well worth the journeys.

Vacation at Cape Cod, MA - July 2011
Cape Cod, often referred to locally as simply the Cape, is a cape in the easternmost portion of the state of Massachusetts, in the Northeastern United State
Cape Cod was formed as the terminal moraine of a glacier, resulting in a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean. In 1914, the Cape Cod Canal was cut through the base or isthmus of the peninsula, forming what may be loosely described as an island.
Unofficially, it is one of the biggest barrier islands in the world, shielding much of the Massachusetts coastline from North Atlantic storm waves. This protection helps to erode the Cape shoreline at the expense of cliffs, while protecting towns from Fairhaven to Marshfield.
Our favorite destinations on Cape Cod:
No one forgets the first time they visit Provincetown. The narrow and vibrant streets of Provincetown offer a cosmopolitan mix of people, restaurants and stores; the Harbor is bustling with fishing boats and whale watches; and the dunes and beaches beckon the adventurous with bike trails and romantic sunsets. The Pilgrims landed here first, then left for Plymouth in search of fresh water. Later, P-town, as it known today, was settled by early colonial settlers, and later, Portuguese immigrants, who came here in large numbers to work in the fishing industry. Still later, Provincetown became, and still is, an artist's colony. The thriving gay and lesbian community of Provincetown is a cornerstone of this town's vibrant culture. Many visitors to the Cape make a day trip to Provincetown to go on whale watch and to see the Pilgrim Monument; others show up after sunset for the nightlife. Day or night, Provincetown is a very popular destination for many different kinds of people.
Inland on this idyllic elbow of sand, the wild moors open to the endless sky. Nearly 40 percent of Nantucket is protected conservation land. Several areas and habitats, natural groups of plants and animals, are rare to this region and even the world.
Martha's Vineyard Island
Locals refer to Martha's Vineyard as the Vineyard and its residents as either Vineyarders or simply Islanders. People who move from the mainland (off-Island) to the island (on-Island) are sometimes called wash-a-shores. Its relatively small year-round population has led to a very activist citizenry who are highly involved in the island's day-to-day activities. Tourism, overdevelopment, politics and many other subjects are of keen interest to the community. Keeping the balance between the much needed tourist economy and the ecology and wildlife of the island is of paramount importance to residents.
