   14. POUCHA POND RESERVATION

Size
154.7 Acres

Description
The sky plunges into view just a short walk from this property’s trailhead — the oaks part and grasslands slope down toward Poucha Pond. But sky vies for attention with water, notably the Nantucket Sound, where in the east the Nantucket Islands are visible. 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.

Uses
Nature study, hiking, picnicking, mountain-biking, horseback-riding, dog-walking, hunting (with permission), scenic vista, universal access (easy terrain).

Directions
Trailhead and bicycle rack located on-site; turn left off the Wasque Road 4.1 miles from the ferry slip.
