      The West Barnstable Conservation Area (WBCA, formerly known as Trail of Tears) is one of Cape Cod treasures and one of its prime riding areas. The WBCA is a 1200 acre parcel of conservation land in the village of West Barnstable. The main recreation focus is multi-use and revolves around mt.biking, hiking, trail running and cross country skiing. Hunting is allowed in season!!

      There is approximately 21 miles of singletrack that wind throughout the WBCA. The majority of singletrack is short and steep with some very twisted sections. Though the trails are not very technical, they’re full of short steep climbs which make for a great aerobic roller coaster ride.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
      Land Status: Conservation Reserve
      Land Manager: Town of Barnstable
