  • A paved recreation path, the Cape Cod Rail Trail extends 25 miles from South Dennis to Wellfleet, through the towns of Yarmouth, Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham, and Wellfleet. The mostly flat terrain has only a few minor grades around Orleans and Wellfleet, and provides a wide variety of scenery and natural landscapes. Although heavily used by cyclists, the paved trail has a wide unpaved shoulder on one side for horseback riders, as well as walkers and runners who prefer a natural surface. There are plenty of places to get off the trail for a beach stop or for food and water, and bike rentals are available at bike shops directly on the trail in Yarmouth, Dennis, Brewster, Orleans, and Wellfleet.
