Mountain Biking Wellfleet Ponds

#51 of 221 mountain bike trails in Massachusetts
#3,416 in the world

Long, winding and twisting, mostly smooth but with lots of sand here and there, minimal technical obstacles but some decent climbs and descents.

    What a gem! Fantastic ride through a mix of fire road, semi paved roads, and tight singletracks weaving through the kettle ponds and even down to the back shore beach. Some serious climbs and fast downhills segments. We didn't see a single other person let alone other riders in 9 miles. There are probably 30miles or more of trails. Nothing is marked so GPS bike computer is a big help. Some soft sand on the fire roads but easily manageable. Bone dry.

    Vacationing in Ptown for the last 6 years I have mountain biked several hundred miles in the National Seashore Provincetown (very limited) Truro and Wellfleet (extensive). Not sure of total miles but must be at least 50. The riding is flowing up down packed sand trails, the tree's are pine, small oaks with blueberry and smattering of poison ivy. Really beautiful woods really! Very few people ride here but cell service is pretty good(just in case) The real gems are the kettle ponds. Parking in Truro you can ride to Duck Pond which has a rabbit warren of single track, bring your GPS for sure and have a swim, making an idyllic MTB Cape Cod kettle pond summer experience. NOT TECHNICAL but fast if you're aggressive two hour ride with swim and 10 miles

    This is a nice trail system, it's mostly hard packed dirt covered in leaves and pine needles, some roots here and there, there are a few ponds that you can stop on along the way. Overall it's a great trail.
