    Cape Cod Rt 6 highway trails

    I've heard about some single track that runs from Dennis to Chatham paralleling Rt6. It starts somewhere behind the Stop & Shop on Rt134.
    Any info would be appreciated like, where's the trailhead? Are the trails all on the south side of the highway? How does it cross the exits?
    Thanks in advance

    Funny I see this posting. I was going to post something a while back, having driven out that way a few times for work (and pleasure). I have seen some old dirt bike trails which might be what you're referring to.

    Anyway, I can't be of much help but I am interested too!

    I live in Dennisport so as soon as the rain stops I'll take my road bike out and try to find the trail head. I was told the trails are pretty buff.
    I'll report back.

    It's pretty sandy. Much better ride in the winter when it freezes. The moto guys ride it quite a bit so it's fairly rutted out as well.

    Years ago I rode some closer to Orleans maybe into Dennis but not to 134. but a route may exist.

    I recall that it wasn't worth my effort to ride around there from Centerville/Hyannis area when there is better riding

    here. But good for nice winter exploration ride.

    My Buddy and I did some exploring on our fat bikes today. Started behind Stop & Shop and followed the trail along Rt 6 all the way exit 11. Some was buff some was sand. Fat bikes were the bikes of choice. There's one short section that you need to ride right next to the highway to cross a creek. Next time we'll start at Rt137 and see how Far East the trails go. Does look like quads use the trail system.
