This short but botanically rich walk beckons beachgoers who may want a brief break from a day spent enjoying the sun and sand beside Vineyard Sound. The state park is part of the Falmouth-based Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research and Reserve, which, according to its Web site, “provides long-term protection to the habitat and resources of this representative estuarine ecosystem.” The trails here, some overgrown (long pants advised), are reserved for walking only. Guided walks are offered during the summer. The State Park and the nearby Town of Mashpee beach provide access to Vineyard Sound.
