| 8. THREE PONDS RESERVATION
All of the land bank’s central Chappaquiddick preserves are amalgamated in this reservation. The eponymous three ponds — Brine’s, Buttonbush and Winterberry — are arrayed along the spine of the cross-Chappaquiddick trail. Noteworthy are the wild fields along the Old Indian Trail; the Brine’s Pond itself, which hosts an island of beetlebung trees situated in the water like an iris in an eye; and the new farm opposite the pond, where rows of summer vegetables follow the contours of the fields.
nature study, hiking, picnicking, mountain-biking, horseback-riding, dog-walking (leashing required April 1 - August 31), hunting (with permission), fishing, kayaking, farming, scenic vista, universal access (moderate terrain) off Old Indian Trail.
Turn right off the Chappaquiddick Road 1.7 miles past the ferry slip. Trailhead, shared with the Chappaquiddick community center, is here; bicycle rack is just up the Chappy Road on the right near the pond.
