We had a great morning walking and beaching here. It's dog friendly - leash only and our golden had the time of her life. Trails are narrow and poison ivy plentiful, so be careful. There is a particular challenge to hiking on narrow bumpy trails in flip flops carrying beach chairs. However once you get to the beach, it's worth... More

A great sunset hike. A great spot of a picnic, too. A summer swim in Quissett Harbor can be refreshing.

Really a must especially if you love photography. It's a good for the soul experience. The views are just breathtaking. Parking is a bit of a challenge.

Sometimes parking is a challenge. Don't give up, the trails are easy to navigate. Great walk to the end with bonus beach access to sit and enjoy the peace

As a neighbor, The Knob is part of our daily routine. It is where we go for quiet, where we go to swim, and where we go to experience nature in what we hope will remain pristine condition. The road down is narrow with limited parking. It is best to park at the bike path and walk or ride your... More

We really enjoyed this spot when staying in Falmouth. The biggest downfall is parking. We tried twice to find a spot then on our 3rd and final try we got a space a little ways off. Be careful when walking to the knob as it is a busy road and hard to see what is coming around the bends. Also... More

This was my favorite spot during my visit to Falmouth! Beautiful views of the sunset. Nice walk through the trees and paths along the water. Parking can be tricky. There are a few spots spread out along the street. It was a busy night when we went, maybe 20 people! We found a quiet spot to enjoy the sunset. I... More

This trail is very easy to follow and not too long to walk to get to great views. If you are thinking about bringing a stroller I would not recommend it. We were glad we left ours behind. The path is not that wide and in a lot of parts a stroller would not fit. But the closer space allowed... More

Nice walk through the woods to a beach area and then on to a raised point of land (the Knob). The views of the ocean are lovely. There are a few stairs at each end of the walk but not many. There is also a bench to sit on at the top of the Knob.
