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.

Our bike path is amazing! 11 miles from North falmouth to Woods Hole, passing bogs, beach, woods, stores, so much. Not a lot of elevation, it is pretty flat. There are a ton of people certain times of the year, best to avoid it if...More

I LOVE the Shining Sea bikeway. Plenty of parking at lots near the start of the trail. Surface is FLAT for ALL levels of bikers. Can get "busy" with children & strollers during peak hours. Beautiful scenery takes one to lovely & vivacious Wood Hole!

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.
