Project goals

The goals of this partnership project are to:

  • Create a multi-use, bicycle and pedestrian, off-road, pathway connection between the Cape Cod Rail Trail / Nickerson State Park and Cape Cod Bay across DCR-owned property.
  • Help relieve parking pressures at Linnell Landing and Crosby Landing.
  • Design the trail to minimize environmental, leaseholder, and neighborhood impacts through the project.
