Trail Description
About this trail
There are several entrances to the park. I have ridden form the main entrance several times if you follow the Cape Cod Rail trail heading west for about .15miles turn left at Ober rd. NOTE: The park has started to charge for parking in certain locations during the Summer. If this is the case, there's a free Cape Cod Rail Trail parking lot just a little ways down the road on the same side as the park.

You will have to piece together sections of green-way and double track to heads towards the section south of Ruth Pound where there is some great flowy single track. Any better entrance and the one I will use going forward is to park at the Freeman's Way ball field. If you park at the circle you will see a path tot eh left of the soccer field that leads right into a nice section of singletrack that you can follow to the east side of the park and around little cliff pond and Higgins pond.

Not much technical riding here but it is great for fast lopps.

Review: Fun singletrack interspersed among the ponds and sites here, but you really need to know where you're going to make it a longer ride. Winging it based on a map is meh, but the trails I found were fun, swoopy, and offered some nice challenges here and there of root and loose sand! Seems like a rad place to camp and bike for a weekend.

Review: I live nearby so I ride here as much as possible. There's some really great "flowy" singletrack in here as well as some really technical bits in places like Flax. The only thing about Nickerson is that you need to know where to go to connect to the good trails.

Review: This is a nice park pretty far out on the cape. The trick is finding the single track that is interlaced amongst all the green-ways and campsite. The pond all have scenic trials around them but watch out for sandy sections that require dismounting. The single track sections are smooth and fast. This is a great winter riding location as they rarely get a ton of snow and it down not stick around for long. That said this winter (2010-2011) was an exception.
