This location has a fantastic view of Buzzards Bay. It is probably 280 degrees of glorious water views. When in Falmouth, it is not to be missed.

The "go to" spot for dogs in the summer when beaches are closed to them. Path is "ticky" and somewhat steep. View at the end is spectacular.

A Falmouth gem in all seasons - rain or shine. Honeysuckle lined the path today to Buzzard's Bay. Can't wait for a summer sunset.

Nice short walk through the woods with beach and harbor views. Located near Woods Hole so it is convenient for food and shops.
