Falmouth Town Forest - Long Pond Trail Professional Review and Guide

"When the Laurentide ice sheet retreated some 15,000 years ago, it left behind in this part of the Cape a wrinkled, rocky landscape dotted with kettle ponds, a landscape very different from the sandy outwash plains found elsewhere on the peninsula.

This leg-stretching circuit of Long Pond, which begins in Goodwill Park, takes full advantage of the terrain, dipping close to the pond shore, then rising across hillsides graced with towering trees. Long Pond and the surrounding town forest form the watershed that supplies most of Falmouth’s drinking water: access within 100 feet of the pond is prohibited. Note that the Cape Cod Pathways map omits some key trails and junctions and shows some dirt roads as “footpath or trail.”"
