Cape Cod Rail Trail, Dennis to Wellfleet

photo of Long Pond, Harwich, from the Cape Cod Rail TrailThe Cape Cod Rail Trail is, as its name implies, a former railroad line that is now used mostly by bikers and rollerbladers. But this doesn't mean that this popular 22-mile trail that cuts through the center of the Cape is not used by anyone else. Indeed, walkers, joggers, and hikers can be seen on this path, enjoying the sights and sounds along the way, whether they are in Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham, or Wellfleet.

The Cape Cod Rail Trail is mostly a wooded path, but there are beautiful sections, such as the area around Long Pond in Harwich (see picture above) and the part of the path around Rock Harbor. Whether you bike, hike, walk, or run, the Cape Cod Rail Trail is worth checking out.
