This map has been put together with different resources. The town of Barnstable has documented their portion of the trail but very few others have. I read about or walked the other portions of the trail shown and have attempted to make a comprehensive map allowing someone to walk from one end of the Cape to the other. Not all trails shown are official Cape Cod Pathways trails. The full trail is around 75 miles. RED = the main trail BLUE and GREEN = loops or alternate routs YELLOW = surface roads PURPLE = Cape Cod Rail Trail
“In 1993, the Barnstable County Commissioners hatched a plan to create a regional system of trails from one end of the Cape to the other. Dubbed the “Cape Cod Pathways,” the concept was to connect the Cape Cod National Seashore with the Cape’s wooded interior, historic villages, and remaining backcountry.” Excerpt from BLT site.
