“Hidden Jewel”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Had no trouble finding the place, other than overshooting a turnoff which we quickly realized, with instructions from Google and reviewer tips. Not much parking and we went on a weekday morning in mid-June, so imagine it is nearly impossible on a weekend in July. Suggest getting there by 10 AM.

We took the path to the right and it was super easy--no bugs at all. It is SO serene there with many photo ops. Can't wait to go again next year!

“Fabulous place!!!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

The 'Knob" is one of the best kept secrets on the Cape. A beautiful place to take a stroll, have a picnic or watch a sunset. Outside of the immediate Falmouth area, many local residents of the Cape have not even heard of this place. You should not make the same mistake!

“Excellent Nature Walk”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

My friend found this sanctuary. Not difficult at all. Beautiful walk brings person through lightly wooded path to great views of ocean on a tiny peninsula. Tip of peninsula gives almost 360 degree view.

“Escape out into the ocean!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

This relatively small reserve is peaceful and beautiful with many different species of birds all around. The walk itself is pretty easy with only a few steps here and there and a lovely outlook at the end of The Knob out over the ocean and coastline.

Could not locate this place. No signs on road. Drove around and could not find this place so gave up and went on to next attraction.
