Was a lovely easy cycle from Falmouth to Woods Hole. We then cycled back from Woods Hole to West Falmouth which again was an easy scenic ride. A great way to spend half a day in the area.

What better way to experience the great outdoors than a leisurely bike ride to or from Woods Hole. You can stop along the way and jump in the water if you get to hot. There are no hills to contend with just a nice straight...More

YES! All trail users need to be mindful of others on the trail - runners, walkers, bicyclists etc. It will be a beatiful walk! Bring a picnic/snack and a blanket to enjoy the beach section in Falmouth!
