Whether you like hiking in the woods or going for a picnic on the beach, the Knob is the place to be. Woods Hole’s hidden treasure has long been a place of peace and wonder for all who have discovered it. Locals and vistors alike have traveled the wooden trails to the top of The Knob to view an amazing sunset overlooking Buzzards Bay and Quissett Harbor. Once you reach the top of the peninsula and stand overlooking Buzzards Bay, it’s as if time stops and all your worries in the world disappear with the sunset. The view is simply breathtaking.

Pack up your beach bag and bring the whole family. Pack a picnic, and enjoy a romantic sunset dinner. Enjoy some fishing off the rocks on Quissett Harbor. The Knob offers something for all. It’s sure not to disappoint.
The Knob is open daily to the public from dawn ’til dusk.
