   72. BEECH TREE PRESERVE

Size
6.6 Acres

Description:
How curious must have been the swirling, restless geography on the west side of the lagoon before trees and houses!  Pitches, slopes, rises and falls, ravines and bowls --and of the latter pair this preserve contains two of the neighborhood's best.  The turnpike sounds of the Edgartown Road fade fast as a hiker heads east from the trailhead and, a thousand or so paces later, the wind-up is a placid cobble-and-sand lagoon beach.

Uses: nature study, hiking, picknicking, mountain-biking, horseback-riding, dog-walking, cross-country skiing, fishing, kayaking, boating, scenic vista

Access: Travel north on the Edgartown Road 1.2 miles from the roundabout; trailhead is located on the west side of the road.
