Trail of Tears

Average Rating:    (4.13 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 16

Trails stretch from Exit 4 to Exit 5. Primary riding under power lines is rocky, but best bet is to steer off these trails onto the singletracks. Technicality ranges from moderate to difficult with various degree pitches. BEWARE: shooting range nearby and deer tick warnings.

Summary:
I was on vacation at the Cape for two weeks and rode this area about every other day. I also visited these trails two years ago and frequently got lost due to the lack of a good map and poor trail signage.

This time I used an awesome map and never got lost. Use the link below to copy and download the map. Lots of options for trails and lengths of rides. i really enjoyed the variety of the trails compared to where I ride in Pennsylvania.

Enjoy!!

Summary:
good trails just wish it was mapped a little better (and or marked a little better) yes i understand the red and green are marked but more toward farmersville is a little unmarked (and being very involved in search and rescue) think it may be a great idea to map and code these trails a little better. but other than that i had a blast of 5hrs of riding and didnt get to it all.

Recommended Route:
exit 3 to cotuit rd., cotuit rd left onto farmersville rd and about 2.5 miles up from farmersville/santuit newtown rd will be the trail of tears gravel parking lot (a little hidden) on the left.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
the crane reservation (mashpee/falmouth) talbot point (sandwich) mashpee river woodlands (mashpee) days that its open cape cod BMX track (otis ang.) (call ahead and check the hrs) the trails that go around camp lyndon (take your own risk there are posted no trespass signs now) and i just was told to leave that area bye the workers.

Summary:
Lots of Great options here. It is the type of place that can challenge an experienced rider at the same time us beginners can also get around without having to walk too much). It all comes down to the pace you set for yourself. The trails are very well marked and there are even some great trail maps posted in a few spots. Very pleased and we didn't come close to trying everything... For sure we will be going back!

Recommended Route:
We parked at exit 5 (it's a right off the exit and an immediate right (not a left) from there. Look for the conservation land signs) and followed the red trail for over 2 hours. We found ourselves on a blue trail for some of the ride. Lots of great singletrak, rocks, roots, technical terrain (some), and even some large rocks/bridges to climb for those looking to break a bone or two. There were fire roads everywhere as well. We found a great track of whoop de doos/pump tracks adjacent to a large field we rode through. If you find the field look for the big mounds of dirt.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Otis (TOT seems to drain as well as Otis and is a great option to ride this time of year)
