For paddlers exploring Sengekontacket Pond or birdwatchers on the dawn patrol, this seventeen acre oasis is a perfect waypoint.

From the Land Bank’s description: Some 1100 feet of pondshore are conserved here, as well as sloping grasslands, salt marsh and a freshwater pond. It is a pocket of pastoral land in an otherwise suburbanized area. Notable here are the short-distance views of Felix Neck on the opposite shore of Majors Cove, the long-distance views of Cape Poge and the thick patch of switchgrass near the water’s edge. Rare plants include bristly foxtail and eastern gama-grass.

Getting there: Head on County road .9 miles from where it meets the Edgartown-VH road and take a right onto the Pulpit Rock road.  Take the second dirt road on the right .3 miles down.
