Delightful short walk with a great view at the end. A little bit of woods and then a lot of ocean. Great spot to take photos as well.

"The Knob" is an iconic place on Cape Cod. It is a like a scale model of a peninsula gone somewhat awry. Imagine a baby volcano (inactive, thank God) built out of a Cape Cod stone jetty. You take a short walk out to it on a fairly narrow path, water on both sides, and when you reach the top... More

We found this by accident and its really worth a visit. A short walk takes you to a lovely spot with great views.

Information contained in other reviews was accurate. Beautiful scenery, we especially liked the stairs that went down to the bay!

We heard about this from another couple that was visiting. It was a nice hike, a nice beach is nearby, and the view at the end was really pretty. Lots of mosquitoes though and poison ivy. So bring the bug spray and stay on the path.

Although the day we did this hike was a bit drizzly, we enjoyed this short hike out to a very beautiful spot that was surrounded by water on 3 sides. When doing this hike, if you have young children who are in flip flops or want less rugged terrain, I would recommend that you stay to the right when you... More

Truly a hidden gem. Not fancy. Not commercialized. The owner of this land donated this land for conservation hence the name.

When in Wood's Hole, having spent quite some time driving around trying to find a spot to park, I walked round a small market on which a chap was selling paintings. One of them was entitled the Knob and I said to the artist that that was a spot on my list of places I wanted to visit, but that... More

We took TomTom down Woods Hole Road, and, after some mis-steps, found the small sign that marked the entrance to this easy walking trail. Our efforts were rewarded with a breathtaking view of the sea, on an outcropping that juts into the wild ocean. We vowed to return in the fall.
