I love animals! I am very caring, trustworthy and responsible. I fully understand that a pet is not just an animal in the house, they become a family member.

Dog Walking in Woods Hole

The seaside village of Woods Hole, in the town of Falmouth on Cape Cod, was settled by fishermen and sailors because of its deep harbor, and became a whaling, fishing and shipbuilding town. Today, it is home to several marine science institutions and is a popular spot for tourists, many passing through on the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard. You and your fur-pup will find lots to do here! Rest assured that if she needs medical attention while in Woods Hole, there are several veterinarians in the area, including in Falmouth and East Falmouth. 

One of the popular outdoor features of Woods Hole is the Shining Sea Bikeway, a rail-trail that is not only for bicyclists. It’s a great place to walk with your pooch, too! It runs almost 11 miles from Woods Hole to North Falmouth, and is an easy, level, paved trail that hugs the coast of Vineyard Sound. It passes through the Salt Pond Bird Sanctuary, and by cranberry bogs, all the while providing the sights and smells that are unique to Cape Cod. You can find parking at the Steamship Authority lot at Woods Hole.

Whether you’re a visitor to the Woods Hole area or live here, you and your canine companion will find a lot to do year-round, from hikes and beaches to fine or casual restaurants. Have a woofderful time!

Other wildlife can be seen here as well, such as chipmunks, squirrels and birds. Woof! Side paths branch off the main trail and offer a more challenging walk, but not an impossible one.
