Mashpee, Massachusetts Map

Great property, didn't know there was a Mashpee Neck or River...SURPRISE! A nice path south for sure, would be nice for mountain biking too. Went down to see some paddleboarders on the river and, turns out, one of them was my neighbor from my Waban days...go figure. Continued down to Pirates Cove and the boat launch area before continuing back up the road then back into the Woodlands. This is a nice place for a trail run! Enjoy!

Beautiful views along water and through woods. Some nice beaches for swimming if you wanted. Blazes and signage could have been more clear.

Wonderful combo of trail & pond. Nice fresh water beaches.

Easy trail for mountain biking. Flat, only a couple hills;nothing too difficult. No rocks. The trail is slim and windy but I would say it’s a good beginners course. Very fun ride.

so thick with mosquitoes that even with natural repellent and DEET we couldn't make it 2 minutes down the trail... we will try again in the winter maybe.


Very fun

Awesome trails for dog walking with a reward at the end . The trail is approximately 20 to 25 minutes long and end with a beautiful view of Wakeby pond. There’s a section for dogs to go in the pond.

Nice easy hike with Great Lake views. Went in the summer and got chased off by mosquitos. Late fall hike was perfect.

Nice hike along the water and marshes near South Cape Beach. The name should be Dead Neck Trail and the map should show pretty much a straight line to a nice jetty view. Great easy hike with the option of taking a side trip to the beach for a dip in the ocean.

end of the trails are overgrown and impassable

Great loop trail with nice views of the lake. Quiet trail. Passed by just a few dog walkers on this Saturday in January. A few more trail markers would have been nice. A bit mucky in spots but always navigable. Glad we came!

Walked this trail through remnants of hurricane Matthew. Easy to find your way. Plenty of Fall wild flowers in bloom. Had the place to ourselves.

Used the app to follow trail. Nice walk with dogs

It was difficult to know if this was the south cape trail as signs did not call it that but it was lovely -- use bug spray and wear a hat, sunscreen! About three miles but good walk.

Full disclosure, we just moved to the cape from CO so our perception of hiking is skewed and we only did the first big loop.

Thought the hike could be improved even for the small area it's contained in: River sightings are sparse and fleeting and the east side backs to housing. I certainly would not consider it a "moderate" difficulty trail.

There are a few nice bird sightings and the trail is maintained. Not something I would recommend though.

Would not recommend on a humid day. Deer flies the size of military drones. GPS mapping system was a total bust. The clouds and the above mentioned genetically enhanced deer flies may have caused the interference. Will do again on a clear fall day as it is a nice site....addendum...GPS not a bust...we followed Thorp Trail which is on the west side of the water. That trail is NOT the trail on this app. Long River Trail is the hike covered by the app.

A unique area with many good bird sightings. The trail is through a scrub forest that is hilly and winding along the river. The water is a bit difficult to reach in most places because the banks are steep and thick with branches. The trails are well kept and open onto nice views of the river. Seveal osprey nests are around and must have counted about 18 swans.

A bit tricky to navigate. Will try again!

i started Quinaquisset Parking lot. I followed the long river trail keeping the river in view. Very scenic and trails offer good variety.

quiet loop, wide easy trail, room to explore

The trail system is quite extensive and not well marked on the south end. I did a quick circle then went to the north parking and found a more challenging and pretty trail. Make sure you to to the west side of the river as it is more scenic and has some small hills and good views. I was lots of winter foul and it might be good for some birdwatching in early spring.
Some trails are not maintained and are rather brushy, watch out for ticks.
I did not make it to the end after bushwhacking for a while, I gave up. Next time I will make the whole distance on the 'road' trail.

Easy to get to but you feel like you are away from it all.
Dog friendly and lots of birds and nature to observe.

This is a nice, short walk, to the woods that opens out onto a lake. I go here often for a close to home walk.
