Buzzards Bay Region Features 10 Hikes for the Fall Season

hikeBUZZARDS BAY – Fall is the perfect time for long hikes through the woods and there’s plenty of colorful fall foliage to enjoy.

The Buzzards Bay region is home to many trails that stretch for miles and there are 10 places close by where people can take a five-mile or longer hike.

The Myles Standish State Forest in Carver and Plymouth is the largest publicly owned recreation area in southeastern Massachusetts.

With 13 miles of hiking trails, 15 miles of bike trails and 20 miles of equestrian-friendly trails, the state forest is home to the most extensive trail network in the Buzzards Bay region.

The Four Ponds Conservation Area has miles of hilly trails through upland forest.

The trails begin near the park’s namesake four clear, sandy-bottomed ponds and goes deeper into the Bourne Town Forest.

Beebe Woods and Peterson Farm in Falmouth includes nearly four miles of former carriage paths and three miles of foot paths which means there’s plenty of walking to be done.

And the Moraine Trail stretches nine miles from Bourne to Woods Hole and the hilly trail leads hikers through pine forests at several protected properties.

Hiking the Moraine Trail from end to end is a unique way to enjoy Falmouth’s natural scenery.
