Our family stopped here before getting on the ferry to MV. We enjoyed it so much we hardly wanted to leave. Can't wait to go back again! Just breathtaking!

“Nice little hike in Woods Hole”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

A nice short one (about .5 mile?) out to a rock promontory. Decent place to walk the dog. Theres a private but rocky beach on the ocean side.

“Falmouth's Treasure”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

The Knob is beautiful. This is great place for anyone: single, couples, families...even the dog. There are two paths to the top. The one on the right is the most direct. The one on the left winds it's way to the top and takes longer. Bring your lunch and enjoy the beach. The best part is it's FREE. If you plan to spend several hours on the beach, get there early so you can get a parking space. Parking is limited but turns over quickly. Most people come just for the walk .

“Hidden Jewel”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Short walk that leads to a beautiful view! Really quite a beautiful and free thing! We just sat and looked at the beautiful view! Our 2 year olds did the walk just fine. You walk out onto this peninsula that is gorgeous. We think its a great place to bring visitors too!
