The Cape Cod Rail Trail runs a total of 22 miles from South Dennis to Wellfleet. This ride takes you only as far as Nickerson State Park in Brewster and back. It’s a beautiful paved path past cranberry bogs, estuary, and kettle ponds and through forest, without having to deal with vehicle traffic, except at the many crosswalks. It can be combined with Ride 18 to Wellfleet, or Ride 23 to Chatham via the Harwich Bike Rotary on the Old Colony Rail Trail. This is a great ride for children and families, fairly flat with only gradual climbs and descents.
