“Scenic Fun”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This bike trail goes for many miles. It goes through woods, along lakes, and under highways. There are cute shops at places along the way to stop for refreshments. It's accessible at several points where parking is set aside, as well as from hotels such as the Four Points by Sheraton where we stayed in Eastham.

We spent a morning in the section spanning Eastham, Orleans, and Brewster before it got too hot. We are casual bicyclists, but there were people of all abilities using it. It could be wider in places, and there are some bumps in the road, Nevertheless our overall experience was very pleasant.

“Well maintained and scenic”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

One evening rode four miles from motel to Wellfleet end and out to beaches. Next day RT Wellfleet to rotary, 34 miles. Very little grade, well maintained trail, lots of restaurants and bike shops to stop along the way. Mileage well marked. Love this trail!

“Walk and Bike in style”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

The rail trail runs through a lengthy part of the Cape. It is flat and great for walking, biking, or jogging.There are stores and eateries along the way. It is popular, but the people add to the buzz that places creates. If you go to the Cape, give it a try.

“Great for biking or walking”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

A lovely activity. There are several bike rental places along the trail as well as places to eat. A great way to get a bit of exercise and get around without having to drive. We biked by cranberry fields and lakes.
