Join The 300 Committee on a walk at Falmouth’s Mock Moraine Trails. The area’s name comes from the family of the previous owners and from the fact that the land runs along the western edge of Falmouth’s glacial moraine. Evidence of glacial activity can be seen in the hilly terrain, boulders, and kettle holes of the 20.4-acre Mock Moraine conservation land between West Falmouth Highway (Route 28A) and Route 28.

Visitors will also see Cape Cod’s oldest Quaker cemetery and a granite post marking the location of Falmouth’s first Quaker meetinghouse. An ancient way, a path used by the Quakers who traveled from Sandwich as they settled in Falmouth in the 1600s, runs through the property to the nearby burial ground.

Park at the playground and tennis courts at Swift Park on Blacksmith Shop Road, up the hill from Route 28A.
