popponesset spit - mashpee ma

Beauty abounds at Popponesset Spit, in recent years named one of the nation’s top restored beaches. Much of that honor is credited to efforts by Save Popponesset Bay and the Massachusetts Audubon Society for helping to restore the threatened barrier beach.

Popponesset Spit is not only a privately owned barrier beach but also a wildlife sanctuary. Owned and protected by non-profits, the spit provides a home for endangered shorebirds, while Popponesset Bay is equally important for the role in plays in sheltering aquatic life.

First opened up in the mid 1970s, the bikeway came to reality when the Town of Falmouth purchased the right of way for the old railroad and tore up the tracks. It just so happens it gets its name from those infamous lyrics of “America the Beautiful”, written by a Falmouth native.
