A beautiful ride. don't let anyone tell you the cape is flat because this ride is hilly. Nothing that even a beginner can't overcome but never the less hilly.

I want to reiterate what I wrote earlier about the Provincelands Trail which I consider Beech Forest is a part. It is refreshing to be surrounded by nature, hear the birds chirpping and just the beauty of the foliage.

Beautiful... More

A very quiet nature area that is great in the early morning or late afternoon. Easy to find with easy parking. Fun bike path. The best part is the bird watching!

This is a fantastic bike path just outside of downtown Provincetown. Be prepared for a good workout. The little "hills" can be a pain to get up. But, the down-hill part is fun! Be careful though, lots of blind curves and there are some areas where sand has been blown across the path. Not to mention the large number of... More

Lovely peaceful stroll through a Beech forest with several small ponds decorated with blooming lilies.. a pretty scene but in June mosquitoes live their too. Had to beat a hasty retreat.
