Many access points, well marked, paved, good trail maps and support along the way. I was surprised at the bike shops offing help. Very scenic, gentle slope if any slope at all. Lots of places to stop along or just off the trail.

The CCRT offers fun rides wherever you join the trail. I saw lots of wildlife, swans, muskrat, etc. There were not a lot of people on the trail at this time of the year, but I imagine that in season it must be crowded.

It depends on wether you are North or South. Dennis or Brewster on the trail is your best bet. In Orleans center there are two shops as well.
