This is an easy loop with a lot to see. Lighthouses, beaches, and the choice to make a longer trip via the Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT). This ride is a loop, so it can start anywhere along its course, with parking at Doane Rock Picnic Area (mile 0.9), the Nauset Light Beach parking lot (fee required in season), along Cable Road by the Three Sisters lighthouses (a few spaces), Nauset Regional High School (not during school hours), or at the start of this ride, the Salt Pond Visitor Center (free parking), just off Route 6 in Eastham on Nauset Road.
Starting at the visitor center, this ride parallels the Nauset Trail for 1.5 miles on Nauset Road, and then Doane Road at mile 0.5. There is the option to ride the Nauset Trail, but riding the roads avoids pedestrians and other users of the multi-use trail, where speeds have to be slower.
