A Falmouth gem in all seasons - rain or shine. Honeysuckle lined the path today to Buzzard's Bay. Can't wait for a summer sunset.

Nice short walk through the woods with beach and harbor views. Located near Woods Hole so it is convenient for food and shops.

The are nice views of the coastline on this short walk and it’s a good spot to bird watch. It is hard to park so you need to be patient or choose a time to visit that’s less busy.

Knob is interesting thing to look at. Its always windy down there, even on a hottest day. You also walk through a lots of greens and it is a long wals. Parking is challenging, but if you do find parking, it is totally worth it!

This is a beautiful nature area, highlighted by the rocky peninsula known as the Knob that sticks out into Buzzards Bay. The views along the path and atop the Knob are breathtaking. Short of actually being on a boat, it's about as close as you...More
