I live adjacent to the bike-path so I get to enjoy it daily The Shining Sea bike path, in its current configuration, is only about five years old. It extends about 11 miles from North Falmouth to Woods Hole. It traverses the Cranberry Bogs and Bourne Farm to the north at about miles 8 and 9 and continues south opening... More

This scenic trip takes you through beautiful marshes along the sea coast through lovely wooded areas and is just a spectacular ride. Highly recommend that if in Falmouth experience the bike way. .

From sandy beaches to wetland salt marshes to cranberry bogs. The Shining Sea Bikeway has it all. There are hills, but you'll only be able to tell if you're going up or down one by pouring out some water and seeing which way it flows.

This 10 mile bike path from North Falmouth to Woods Hole is easy for beginners and is especially suitable for families. It goes through cranberry bogs and salt water marshes with ocean views of Buzzard's Bay and Vineyard Sound. Every mile is absolutely gorgeous. I live on this bike path and enjoy how the seasons change. Several beaches are accessible... More

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.
