We did walk on Saturday afternoon.It was very nice and easy walk. We had 3 yo and she enjoyed running the whole trail. It is a good place to introduce kids to nature walks/hikes.

I have been visiting the Cape, well, since, 1950, and I admit I did not know about the Knob in Falmouth. A friend led us there, and all of us experienced a marvelous sunset over Buzzard's Bay. Seek out this wonderful spot.

A beautiful easy 1 mile hike to a small piece of land out in the ocean. It is so beautiful, the site of many weddings and hikes by young and old alike. It is a bit hard to find as the signage is not great which makes it just that much more charming. Highly recommend spending a bit of time... More

So happy we found this place! Although we tried to follow directions given by another, we went too far left upon entering the path. We walked through an unnecessary longer part.(should have gone right!). It was very peaceful and beautiful. We got there early and had no difficulty parking. Glad we visited.

In the height of the season parking is a bit difficult. Once you arrive take the left fork in the trail to get a longer hike and all the beautiful vistas. The short trail on the right gets you to the beach and the ultimate scenic view more quickly. If you plan on swimming off the beach water shoes would... More

Went on a perfect, sunny, summer day. Beautiful views of the water and the shoreline. We chose to take the path along the water which is rocky, so stay on the dirt path of you are wearing flip flops. The walk is worth it. Great little place to stop and enjoy nature.

We arrived about 45 minutes before Sunday which was perfect timing because we got the last parking spot. The trail was short and a bit bumpy but easy to walk. I wore flip flops but probably should have worn a rubble sole. The view is just gorgeous. If you are in the Falmouth area you must make the visit!!! Just... More

Great place to walk, secluded beach. Wooded trail, great oceann views from a small height (the knob). I'll not say where it is because I don't want it crowded!

No parking and really difficult to get to. The view is gorgeous and it would be a great place to watch the sunset but there are about ten parking spaces and they are always full.
