Shining Sea Bikeway Rock Statues – Slideshow

Shining Sea Bikeway Rock Statues
Written by Brian Tarcy


FALMOUTH – There is a free, evolving art show by seemingly several anonymous artists who have put up hundreds of rock statues just off of the Shining Sea Bikeway between Falmouth and Woods Hole.

With a background of Vineyard Sound and Martha’s Vineyard, this section of the aptly-named bike path is maybe the most spectacular part. And right there were these stone statues, from simple four-rock stacks all the way to intricate creations featuring dozens of finely-balanced rocks, seashells, and even horseshoe crab shells.

On our first pass, we were not the only ones taking photos. On our second pass, we saw some some folks, obviously artists, gathering rocks then adding to the newest and coolest art collection on Cape Cod.
