– Yankee Magazine, March/April 2010

Ten years ago, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a flat, 28-mile dedicated bike trail, was almost seen as a hazard by the state. Now it’s practically a natural resource—so much so that millions of dollars have been poured into it recently to rehab bridges, tunnels, and culverts, and to widen and repave the route. The last phase of construction will be finished in June. The trail, which starts mid-Cape at Route 134 in Dennis and extends to Wellfleet, passes lakes and marshland, forests and harbors.

At the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham, don’t miss the spur trail heading to the Atlantic Ocean.
