If you enjoy hiking and cycling then you are sure to love the Falmouth Trail System. A long running project known as "the greening of Falmouth", has resulted in the creation of an extensive trail system and various other preserves, launches and public spaces.
One of the trails which has resulted from this effort is the Woods Road Community Forest trail. There are two trail heads. One which is located on Woods Road, itself, across from the Woodlands Country Club, while the other is on Longwoods Road. Enter the trail at either location and roam on the 4.4 miles of interconnecting trails.
Set in a triangle, between Longwoods to the east, Woods Road to the south, and Woodville Road to the west, is 161 acres of wooded and open land which has been set aside as a deer yard, in order to protect the winter deer, the trail offers hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, and cross country skiing. The land which the trail flows through contains some of the oldest forest stands in Falmouth and is home to a large variety of birds, deer and trees.
Limited snow machine use is allowed on marked trails, and while dogs are welcome at various times of the year, you will want to make sure you clean up after them during your hike.
