Beautiful ride
Oct 2021
This is a beautiful easy rail trail. You pass cranberry bogs, farms, swamp land and marsh areas. It is well traveled so be sure to ride your bike safely when passing. The ride starts in Falmouth and ends at the ferry terminal in Woods Hole. There is plenty of parking at several places. You can download a map to find them ahead of time.

Excellent riding path
Sep 2021
The bikeway is long and smooth. It is relatively flat and offers good scenery. It's great for walking too. Long stretches toward the north are shaded

Great fill-in for MV trip
Aug 2021
We were pleased with this easy, scenic path which was a fill-in for the trip to Martha's Vineyard. Lots of different sections with pleasant stops along the way. Recommend highly! (Just be real about Ms. Bates connection to the town!)

Very Nice Bike Path
Sep 2021
Excellent paved bike path that is well marked. Basically flat with a minimal grade which makes this a very easy ride.

Wonderful biking and walking path
Sep 2021
We loved walking a four-mile stretch of this during our recent visit to Falmouth, one that passed through wooded areas and along marshes, with Buzzards Bay frequently in sight. The occasional informational sighs were much appreciated (we learned to look for osprey nests atop telephone poles, as well as on the platform in one of the marshes built specifically to attract ospreys to nest). I'd love to walk more of it on our next visit. What a wonderful re-use of an old rail bed!

Bike by the sea
Sep 2021 • Couples
Great leisurely ride through woods, marsh, and by the sea. You do have to stop at a few intersections however area drivers are very courteous. A nice surprise was a section with stacked stones. Would be a good way to catch the ferry as the path leads right to it.

Beuatiful views
Jul 2021
This appears to be an old rail trail that runs almost 11 miles. The changes in grade are very small. The entire trail is paved with asphalt with much of it in good condition. We traveled the trail from start to finish with our start in North Falmouth. There is a bike shop at the trail head that has nice/new bikes for about $20 per day. There is a great little restaurant along the trail in Falmouth.

Great Bike Path
Jul 2021
Great views from salt mashes, cranberry bogs, to ocean views. There are some places to stop along the path for food or ice cream but you can also just go directly into Woods Hole.

Fun way to see some of the coast
Jun 2021 • Couples
This is an excellent way to see the sites of Falmouth and get some exercise. The trail was smooth and wide enough for 2. Other users were courteous and road crossings were easy to navigate.

Beautiful and well maintained

What a lovely bike ride! The path was straight and well paved. There are parking lots in a few spots. Everyone was friendly and nice about passing. Can't recommend more!
