Cape Cod Rail Trail Horseback Riding

The 4th most popular equestrian trail in Massachusetts.

The Cape Cod Rail Trail is a 27 mile horseback riding route from SR134 in Dennis to Le Count Hollow Road in Wellfleet. The horseback riding route passes by salt marshes, cranberry bogs and ponds. This paved route connects with multi-purpose paths into Nickerson State Park and Cape Cod National Seashore (via Nauset Bike Path).

There are two nice side trips: the spur trail to the Chatham town line, and the trip east on Le Count Hollow Road to Cahoon Hollow Beach for lunch at the Beach Comber Restaurant on the water.

Trailhead is on LeCount Hollow Rd. in South Wellfleet. This is the northern trailhead.

Overall, Cape Cod Rail Trail is the 4th most popular horse trail of all 23 horseback rides in Massachusetts.
