Join Troop 4 for an exciting weekend riding your own bike along the Cape Cod Rail Trail, and other nearby sights.

We’ll following the route of the old Cape Cod Railroad through five mid- to lower-Cape towns. The western terminus is on Route 134 in Dennis and winds through Harwich, Brewster (with a detour through Nickerson State Park), Orleans (through the beautiful Rock Harbor area) and continues through a salt marsh to the Cape Cod National Seashore Center in Eastham and Le Count Hollow in Wellfleet. The Trail itself extends from the Route 134 trailhead to Le Counts Hollow Road in South Wellfleet. The name stems from the old railroad right of way it follows, which used to transport passengers and freight to Cape Cod in the early 1800s until around 1960. The route passes by many local points of interest and several lakes suitable for swimming and picnics, including Nickerson State Park in Brewster.

We’ll be camping at the Boy Scout Camp Greenough Reservation, sleeping in Shelters located around a Camp Fire and covered cooking/eating Pavilion.
