I haven't seen the CCRT. I can tell you that the Falmouth trail was buried in downed leaves and branches after Sandy (they never seem to sweep the leaves any time), and was closed for the last one and a half miles due it and the shoreline road being buried in sand. I'm sure the road has been cleared, but YMMV on the trail. Dry leaves aren't that big a deal, unless they're hiding crap that will flat you. We've also had almost 10 days now of fairly strong NE winds, both from the noreaster and since, so I would guess that whatever leaves Sandy left up have come down for the most part.
It's going to be a heavy traffic weekend, too, if you opt for the roads. One option would be to park at the National Seashore visitor center in Eastham and wend your way along the side roads up to Truro, if riding on the shoulder of Rte 6 makes you uncomfortable. It's a nice wide shoulder most of the way, but you always have to be alert for a right hook from some clueless driver.
