Join the Appalachian Mountain Club on a one-way, 9.2-mile hike along Cape Cod’s lush Falmouth Moraine Trail. Come experience some autumn splendor!

You will encounter densely wooded areas as well as beautiful views of Long Pond and Grews Pond. Much of the terrain is rugged with some steep inclines and rocky depressions. Hikers should be in good physical condition, able to hike 9+ miles at a moderate pace.

Meet in Goodwill Park, in lot on the right by the covered picnic area. The hike should take approximately five hours plus additional time for carpooling. Please have room in your car to accommodate passengers and to facilitate our drive to the start and the return to our cars.

Registration is required for this activity. Please contact leader Cathy Giordano to register.

Bring at least 2 liters of water, snacks, and lunch, sturdy hiking boots, a hat, a jacket ( for unpredictable Cape temperatures), rain gear, sunscreen, and bug repellent. Wearing HUNTERS ORANGE IS A MUST as it is hunting season.

Note: Most of this trail is heavily wooded and grassy. Please protect yourself from ticks, mosquitoes and poison ivy by wearing long pants and applying bug spray to your shoes and clothing. Permethrin and Deet are suggested.

Cost: Free
