Bike path can start in Woods Hole or at Route 151 railroad tracks. The views are spectacular and it would be hard to find a better short ride than this one. Once you do ride you will be back

The shining sea bikeway is an excellent way to spend a day or a few hours. It has many access points so you can do as little or as much of it as you'd like. Rather you start in north Falmouth and go by the cranberry bogs first and finish in Woods Hole after going by the many beaches and... More

My wife and two year old daughter and I walked this Bikeway on two different occasions. The longest walk being from Elm street to just short of Woods Hole (approx 3 miles round trip). We were able to spend the first part of it walking parallel to the beach then it goes inland behind beautiful homes and thickly settled areas.... More

The bikeway is a very easy ride even for those who are out of shape but, the best part of the ride is the amazing views as the bikeway follows the ocean shore line. Breath taking views of the ocean and Martha's vineyard.
