   45. BLACKWATER POND RESERVATION

Size
106.51 Acres

Description
The land bank is drawn to the headwaters of the island’s various brooks, for many reasons including preservation of streamwater quality.  The trickle of water exiting the Homestead Pond here eventually--two miles away--enters the Vineyard Sound at the  lamberts Cove Beach; before it leaves the reservation it passes through the Blackwater Pond, Southern Duarte's Pond and Northern Duarte's Pond. The pond itself is an island rarity: not a single house is perched astride its shores. Here is peace.

Uses

Nature study, hiking, picnicking, mountain-biking, horseback-riding, dog-walking (leashing required April 1 - August 31), hunting (with permission), fishing, kayaking, universal access (easy terrain)

Directions


Start at the Tisbury - West Tisbury town line on the Lamberts Cove Road and proceed 0.5 miles into West Tisbury, turn left at the land bank logo sign.
