Like cleaning your plate and saying that was horrible, how could I say the the trail was not up to snuff, when I spent so much time on it. My only complaint is that I was on foot, and it is not a thrill a minute trail on foot, but if you travel at bicycle speed???? perhaps it is.

This bikeway goes from North Falmouth all the way to Woods Hole about 12 miles. It travels along the ocean, cranberry bogs, and marshes most of the time. It is a popular place during the Summer and Fall but the brave use it all year long. We have bikers, walkers, baby carriages - a real family environment.

This bike path was easy, and so peaceful. Red, orange, yellow and green leaves are breathtakingly beautiful. Highly recommended for Cape Cod trip. I also went off road to Nobska lighthouse, it was an easy ride off trail as well.

This is a beautiful path, that is fairly well maintained and great for families. Especially loved riding through the marsh areas and along the beach.

The bike path is beautiful, passing through wooded areas for the northern portion, then along the beach for the southern end. Most of the surface is in good shape, although there are some tree-root-cracks on the northern end. The ride is almost dead flat, although the southern end can be windy, with steady heads winds on the south-bound ride common... More

We have stayed in Falmouth several times and use this bikeway to get some exercise and get to Woods Hole for a visit there or go to Martha's Vineyard for the day. (The southern part of the trail from Falmouth is maybe 4 miles) It's so much easier and less expensive to take a bike to the Vineyard than a... More

This a great bike path to get some riding time in safe from traffic. Local roads are narrow and somewhat congested. The bike path travels along the coast and through very plesant areas slightly inland. It provides a nice path to walk or jog as well. As an added bonus one end is in Woods Hole, which is a great...

We are a local family living very near the northern end of the bikepath. We use it frequently/daily in the warm weather months... hubby can commute to work, and our teenage boys bike or longboard to beach, harbor, or to hang out with the pretty summer girls. I run or walk with friends and often walk the dog on it... More
