From the Village of North Falmouth to the Village of Woods Hole, site of the Woods Hole Steamship Authority, the Shining Sea Bike Path is a beautiful paved journey through the salt ponds, woodlands and passes by the ocean. Built for bicyclists, it’s a great walk too.

This bikepath has meant so much to locals and Tourists alike. It is flat, has parking and the end result of the WoodsHole village is perfect for lunch or an ice cream.

This bike path is beautiful. It has many points that you can start/ stop so you can ride for as long as you want. It goes along the beautiful beaches and into Woods Hole. At times it is crowded with walkers, but not too bad. Give it a try, you'll love it!

You will enjoy the bike path taking you through Falmouth and to Woods Hole. You could then take the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Check it out..........and enjoy the day

Shining Sea Bike Path was where I take a walk, bike and mostly jog. It is where I feel safe away from the vehicles running. It's a narrow bike path passing by breath taking beaches. Very beautiful place.. A place I won't forget.
