Biked this trail from Falmouth to Woods Hole. Paved with benches to rest and enjoy the beautiful views of the ocean and Marthas Vineyard. One of the best of the numerous Cape Cod bike trails. You won't be sorry if you give it a try!

This is a must do if visiting Falmouth. Trail is very easy and can be walked as well as biked. Very scenic and easy trail that takes you from Falmouth to the ferry in Woods Hole.
