This trail is now almost 12 miles each way and is a spectacular ride! I have ridden it about 3 times a week this spring and early summer and its marsh and ocean views are unbelievable. Go earlier in the morning or later in the day and you can't be disappointed. Have breakfast in Woods Hole or lunch in North Falmouth. There are many opportunities to stop and hike while passing through the Bourne Farm. It has increased my love of Falmouth 10 fold. Please give it a try!
Mediocre trail, very short. You can start in the village and rent a bike from the local store and then bike down all the way to Woods Hole.. It's crowded with families. You might like it if you have a family and want to embark on a short trip.
Otherwise avoid it if you can.
The best part is the beach you are going to bike along ( i think it's by surf drive) you can park your bike and spend some good time in the sun. The water's temperature is usually tolerable. NO LIFEGUARD except for the "restriced" access beach. Swim AT YOUR OWN RISKS.
