Take a ride through the little towns that lie on the 35 km (22 mi) long Cape Cod Rail Trail. Bought by the state of Massachusetts in 1976, the former railroad route extends trails from other states through six towns, making it a unique adventure. Take a stroll or bike on the trail and see the American life from a new angle. You can get off at any of the trail stops, many of which strech into spacious beaches.
