The trail is currently closed. So, you are limited to the short stroll on the beach. Parking is very limited here. Have a Plan B in mind when heading here. If you do get a parking spot, you will be treated to the beautiful views of the historic waterfronts. Birdwatching takes place here, too. Listen to them sing.

This is a great place to go to see the beautiful scenery and take a hike. It is a little point on the beach that you can hike through and enjoy the view. There is a little beach there if you want to take a dip to cool off. Hope you enjoy this little gem when you are in Falmouth, Ma. Happy Traveling!

There is a small public beach just off the trail to the Knob. This beach remains dog friendly in Summer (unlike almost all other Cape Cod beaches dogs are allowed at the Knob beach during Summer months). This beach is not supervised (no lifeguards).

Crowded, COVID19 virus protocols ignored by most visitors, tick infested (Lyme Disease), unruly dogs unleashed, trails so narrow that others without masks can hardly be avoided. Little to no room for safe physical separation. Parking so limited there is essentially none most of the time.

Recommend avoiding during the pandemic! Be safe. Go elsewhere.

This is a small nature preserve with several walking trails, mostly leading to the Knob which is a tiny promontory out into Buzzards Bay with great views of the Elizabeth Islands and most of the bay. It abuts quaint Quissett Harbor. The only way to get to the Knob is on foot, and it's about a 1.2 mile round trip on easy trails. There's also a pleasant crescent shaped hike-in beach near The Knob.

This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. I literally got to a point and stopped walking b/c I was stunned by the beauty. We went in Sept with perfect weather about 3pm- this was a great time to explore. We walked the rocky beach around part of the way and then walked up the stairs to the end of the knob and then took the trail back. You will not regret going here.

This site can be found by driving down Oyster Pond Road all the way to the end. There is parking on the right side with the harbor on the left. The entrance to the knob is between the harbor and a private driveway. After walking a short distance there's an information kiosk showing different trails.

Parking can be a premium, so you may want to grab the first spot you see when you get to the harbor.

Watch out for poison ivy along the way.

This is the place to go to get Lyme disease. Many ticks, fall and summer where the bushes along the trails brush against your clothe. Great mosquito presence at dusk

We walked on the path to The Knob that was lined with sweet honeysuckles. Not knowing what to expect, we continued on along the wooded path and began to smell the sea. The path opened up to a gorgeous view of the Sound. There are rock-made steps if you care to venture down to the secluded beach. We continued on, upon encouragement from a local... The Knob is a 360 view of sparkling water. It was truly breathtaking, almost a spiritual experience. We sat on the rock bench and just basked in the beauty. A must see if you are in Woods Hole or Falmouth area. There are many photo opportunities here. Also, limited parking. Enjoy a sunset here, you won't regret it!

Could not locate this place. No signs on road. Drove around and could not find this place so gave up and went on to next attraction.
