Gorgeous and flat, the CCRT is a paved trail that stretches 22 miles from Dennis to PTown. This would be a great trail for even young kids, as the trail is flat and fairly wide. Very scenic and quiet. A nice change from he beach.

It depends on wether you are North or South. Dennis or Brewster on the trail is your best bet. In Orleans center there are two shops as well.
