Poucha Pond Reservation

"Poucha Pond."

Hey is there another island over there?

On a clear day, from the top of the hill at Poucha Pond Reservation you can see the outer Nantucket Islands of Muskeeget and Tuckernuck and even, some say, a mysterious land of pink pants beyond. Several fine and relatively easy trails weave their way over the 165 grassy and woodland acres.

From the Land Bank’s Page for the Preserve: At the base of the hill is the Poucha Pond marsh, whose flatness is a visual juxtaposition from the aerie that hikers were enjoying just minutes earlier. This is a good place to spot herons and egrets feeding in the low saltmarsh.

Getting there: 4.1 miles from the Chappy Ferry on the Wasque road.
