Cape Cod Rail Trail

Explore all that Cape Cod and the Islands have to offer.  If you want to stay local, consider a tour through the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.  There are lots of hands on displays making it very engaging for children.  You can also walk the marshes and observe live birds, frogs, turtles and fish in their natural habitats.  Don’t miss the osprey nest or the inflatable whale!

Rail Trail Bike and Kayak rentals is just around the corner on Underpass Rd.  Rent bikes for the whole family and explore the 22 mile Cape Cod Rail Trail which runs through Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet.  The trail offers many opportunities to get off and visit a beach or grab a cool drink and a bite to eat.
