The bike path at Head of the Meadow is wonderful to ride, especially in the mornings. However it has developed many cracks and bumps from tree roots over the years and needs to be resurfaced. I hear that this may happen next year!

2 mile walk with no shade on a warm summer day. Great beach at the end of the trail. Will go back to this gorgeous beach when we can drive. Be sure to bring water when walking in the heat.

The biking trail starts next to the parking area, which you access by taking the left just before High Head Rd slopes upward....It's true that the asphalt on the biking trail looks to be pretty old and is bumpy to ride on. But the surroundings...More

It was very clean with awesome dunes in the sunlight or the moonlight (....wink wink), Visiting food trucks which made it even funner! We saw seals.

F- is being generous for the bike trail. The bike path is a bumpy unkept paved path that is an embarassment to the National Seashore. There are no views, no interpretative signs and no apologies. This is one path to avoid on the Cape. Someone...More
