The Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT)

The Cape Cod Rail Trail, is a paved bikeway that runs 25 miles from South Dennis to Wellfleet. The terrain is relatively flat with some minor grades in certain sections in the Lower / Outer Cape areas, specifically Orleans and Wellfleet. Short side trips on roads lead to several National seashore beaches. It easily offers the greatest variety in scenery and natural landscapes of all the regional bike paths.
