It's an easy stroll but with a great view. If it's a hot day take your swimmers and enjoy a refreshing dip. We went lunchtime mid week in June and didn't have any parking issues but there aren't many spaces. It's a delightful spot and the drive there from Falmouth was very scenic. A worthy detour.

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!

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!

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.

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.
