Awesome shared (pedestrian and bike) walking path that allowed me to safely travel on foot from Woods Hole to Falmouth, MA. Part of the path is along the ocean and offers amazing views.

The trail runs from Falmouth to Woods Hole. We started in Falmouth and had a lunch break in Woods Hole and returned. The trail is 11 miles and lovely. If you google, you should find maps and further information.
