Beebe Woods, Falmouth – Slideshow

Beebe Woods
Written by Brian Tarcy

FALMOUTH – It was a great weekend for a hike in the nearly 400-acre Beebe Woods.

The leaves are in their autumn glory and the day I was in the woods the warm autumn sun was making everything bright.

I have visited Beebe Woods many times and I always find it confusing in there with all the unmarked paths. In fact, I found three separate signs in different parts of the woods that, I recall from years past, used to be legible with arrows pointing to where things were.

But all the signs were faded. The only legible sign I found, it seems by pure luck, was about 15 feet up a tree. That sign led me to the Punch Bowl, one of Cape Cod’s many kettle ponds left behind by the glaciers that formed Cape Cod. This was good. I was looking for the Punch Bowl.

But without other signs in the woods directing me, I feared others would be looking for me… in April. But, fortunately, I found my way back to tell this tale.
