A beautiful spot in Falmouth that definitely should not be missed. The trails are well-maintained and the views are stunning. Be advised that there is very limited parking--if going during peak season it is recommended to try and go in the morning.

we walked the trail, very easy walk, to the Knob. It was a clear day...we could see for miles...gorgeous views of ocean and beaches. I wish they had signs noting what we were looking at.

The small hike through the woods is a fun adventure before you behold The Knob. Walking out to it and up the stairs brings you to beautiful views of the ocean. Don't forget your camera.

We visit the Knob frequently. The walk through the woods to the point of land is peaceful as is the main walk. You can also walk along the shore. What you see varies with the season. We have seen fish leaping out of the water to catch little fish! If I were a young one I would want to get married on the knob.

Located at the Knob (Quissett Rd) in Falmouth, this is a secluded bird sanctuary and small beach (don't need a beach sticker). Great views and quite private...a haunt for locals.
