Middle Line Woods Preserve

Even Our Dumps are Worth a Visit

From the Land Bank’s description: This property’s location, next to the Chilmark landfill, makes it an inauspicious location for a memorable natural experience, right? Wrong. The ridgelines are high — with snatches of views of the Buzzards Bay, beyond Pasque Island — and the boulders here rival Waskosim’s Rock, Devil’s Bed and other Island notables.

Getting there: Chilmark Dump on Tabor House Road.
