      Greenough is one of the three riding areas that make up the Willow Street complex of trails. Locals refer to all of these trails as “Exit 7” and many will choose to do an extended ride that includes trails from all three.

      Greenough is located to the north of route 6 at Exit 7. The name derives from Camp Greenough a Boy Scout camp where many of the trails are located. But, Greenough’s trails extend well beyond that, reaching the ocean at Grays Beach to the north, the Badlands (Exit Cool to the west and the extensive Willow Street trails to the south of the highway.

      The trails in the Scout camp are really fun, fast flowing singletracks, moderately hilly with a few technical climbs and descents. There are few rocks or exposed roots, save for the ‘black’ trail. The perimeter trails, (see map) are open all year to the general public for biking and hiking, but the trails in the center of the camp should be avoided when the Scouts are camping. Generally, that’s during the summer months.

      To the north of the railroad tracks there’s a route to the aforementioned Grays Beach. This is a fun ride which goes right through the parking lot for the Yarmouthport Village Store where you can stop for refreshments. When you get to the beach there’s a long scenic boardwalk that extends well into the marsh.

      There are two sections of trail on the map that are closed to bikes, Miller Pond and Camp Wingate. These trails are open to foot traffic and are included on this map so that you’ll know where you shouldn’t ride. In all there’s about 20 miles of fun riding at Greenough.

      Most people choose to park just south of Exit 7 beside the railroad tracks. Just pull off the road and park in the cleared area next to the tracks.This location gives you easy access to all three of the Willow Street complex’s network of trails.

      How to choose where to ride: Well, Greenough has lots of rolling hills and interesting singletracks, plenty of lake views, and even an ocean to enjoy. Higgins Crowell is mellow and flat. Lots of singletracks winding through the woods, but no hills and no technical features. It’s a great place to bring newer riders or a place to put on a lot of miles. Willow Street, behind the railroad tracks, is different. By far the hardest, there are plenty of hills and challenging singletracks. This should be your first choice if you want to work hard.

      Cape Cod NEMBA works hard to keep all of these trails open, fun and deadfall free. If you’re looking for people to ride with, post a note of the CC NEMBA Facebook page.
      Located in what we consider to be mid-Cape. The ‘Exit 7” trails will draw you back over
