Our very favorite bike path on Cape Cod. It is just over 10 miles long from the Rte 151 Ferry parking area to Woods Hole. Part of the trail goes along the shoreline.

It's easy to find, always cleaned up after winter before other bike paths are. I biked and rollerbladed there. Pavement is perfect even for rollerblading except in a couple spots. In summer it gets too crowded with little kids and families, but it has such...More

The Shining Sea bike path is 10+ miles long flat and easy riding (so 20 out and back). We rode north from the Falmouth coast and the views of the salt marshes and Buzzard Bay coast are great. There are many side routes and low...More

A beautiful bike path with a little of everything. Very scenic with some parts in the sun, some sections in the shade, some along the beach and oceanfront, some in woods and tidal marshes. You will love it.

It's an easy ride and takes you through so much of what is the cape! Definitely recommend it to anyone!

Perfect way to see the Cape: marsh, beaches and woods! Flat and well-maintained! The only 'negative' is that it can be too crowded during some points in the summer.

If you like Italian food you must go to Slice of Italy in Falmouth. Or for a diner go to Betsy's which is quite good. Both are on Route 28 in Falmouth.

We rented two bikes from Bike Zone in N. Falmouth which is right at the beginning of the trail and I believe we paid around $21 each to have the bikes for the entire day. They did a great job of adjusting the bikes for us.
