This is an easy mountain bike ride through another section of Nickerson State Park, but this one connects to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. I like a cyclocross bike for this ride, but a mountain bike or fat tire bike can handle it easily. Flax Pond is a great fresh- water swimming area, and you can ride this loop and start or finish there as an option. This ride is a short cyclocross or mountain bike route that takes riders on a challenging course through pine and oak forest, along a fresh water beach, around a few ponds, over sandy climbs, and down fast descents through Nickerson State Park and Brewster.
