“Excellent Nature Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

My friend found this sanctuary. Not difficult at all. Beautiful walk brings person through lightly wooded path to great views of ocean on a tiny peninsula. Tip of peninsula gives almost 360 degree view.

“Escape out into the ocean!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

This relatively small reserve is peaceful and beautiful with many different species of birds all around. The walk itself is pretty easy with only a few steps here and there and a lovely outlook at the end of The Knob out over the ocean and coastline.

“Could Not Find”

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.

“The Knob”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Delightful short walk with a great view at the end. A little bit of woods and then a lot of ocean. Great spot to take photos as well.

“SUNSET (period!)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2013

"The Knob" is an iconic place on Cape Cod. It is a like a scale model of a peninsula gone somewhat awry. Imagine a baby volcano (inactive, thank God) built out of a Cape Cod stone jetty. You take a short walk out to it on a fairly narrow path, water on both sides, and when you reach the top there's a neat little bench to sit down. Other than the pathway, you are surrounded by water and Buzzard's Bay sprawls out in front of you, looking south and west. There are few places better to watch the sunset. You get to it by finding Quisset Harbor in West Falmouth. The one big negative about it and the only reason I don't give it 5 stars is the parking is very limited when you get down to the harbor. Worth a second attempt if you can't park the first time.
