103.2 Acres

Quirky land is a natural conservation priority; this land is quirky. Its wetlands form a honeycomb near the center of the property, and the rise and fall of the various elevations creates puddles of wetlands in unexpected places. A spagnum bog, pear-shaped and isolated, is its most special feature. Visible from the rises are the Vineyard Sound and the hills above Menemsha.

Nature study, hiking, picnicking, mountain-biking, horseback-riding, dog-walking (leashing required April 1 - August 31), hunting (with permission), scenic vista, universal access (moderate terrain).

Start at the intersection of the State and Lobsterville Roads. Proceed 0.5 miles down the Lobsterville Road and turn right onto dirt road; trailhead is 0.1 miles ahead.
