While under some construction, taking a right onto Church St. coming out of Woods Hole, this area is worth the drive following the road through marshes and beaches back towards Falmouth. Very scenic.

This historic lighthouse was recently deededto the town of Falmouth and is currently undergoing extensively renovation expected to be completed next spring. Fantastic views of Martha's Vineyard. Well worth visiting but check hourls and days open first.

Drove all the way out here principally to see the lighthouse only to find it shrink wrapped and under repair!!! Wish they would update their info on line. Nevertheless, across the road you get amazing views of the channel between the mainland and Martha's Vineyard....More

Bummer it was shrouded and no notice on the web site. They should update the information so people don't waste their time.

I didn't notice the trolley. Most people ride their bikes up there. My husband and I walked there and back from the Woods Hole Inn. The weather was nice, so we made the most of it. You can drive to the lighthouse, but there... More
