In addition, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, maintained by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, runs 26 miles between the towns of Dennis and Wellfleet.Bikes are allowed on the three designated national seashore bike trails, on paved roads and parking areas, and on unpaved roadways (fire roads). They are not permitted on trails or on beaches.
