Join the Southeastern Massachusetts chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club for a two-hour hike through Quaker Woods in Falmouth. You’ll step back in time 350 years to the site of one of the earliest Cape Cod settlements and see the first Quaker burial ground on the Cape. Depending on time, the group may also walk a bit on the local bike path, West Falmouth Harbor, and possibly a nearby beach. All adults and kids are welcome!

Rain cancels this hike, but call the leader if you’re having doubts about the weather.

Directions: From the north or the east, take Route 28 south to the Brick Kiln Road exit. Right at the end of the ramp. After 0.5 miles, turn right at the flashing yellow light onto Route 28A, then go 0.6 miles to a left at Old Dock Road. Go 0.1 miles and park in the lot on the right by the bike path.

Cost: Free
