The path is convenient and lovely! We loved the canopy and the views, it is really a must if you enjoy outdoor activities.

“beautiful, scenic, well kept bike trail”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

The views are beautiful and you can ride right into Woods Hole for a drink or lunch. Part of the trail goes right along the beach which is very rare. We love it and ride it every time we go to the cape. From starting point to Woods Hole is about 11 miles one way.

“Fun little bike trail”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Nice little walk down an old train line turned into a bike trail. Very straight and naturey, not too many sites to see.

“exercise, views, and access to the area by bike and feet”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We took the path on foot from Falmouth to Wood's Hole, to get exercise, see the area, both forests and beaches, and limit our driving. It is quiet and pretty, with very little bike usage during the fall season, and more foot traffic. Not sure what it is like in the summer season, but probably still a good way to get outdoors and exercise.

“Great way to travel between Falmouth and Woods Hole, MA”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Nice paved, fairly level trail through woods, marshes, bogs, nature preserves, towns and along the ocean (can be a pretty windy stretch) which ends at the Steamship Authority in Woods Hole. You can park your bike here and walk into town to explore some of the sites and grab a bite to eat. There are benches to rest at along the trail if you so desire and bathroom facilities spaced along the trail. The trail does go through some commercial areas, so you can grab some water if you happen to run out along the way. Great way to get a feel for the area. Used by local residents for running, dog walking, etc.
