North Neck Highlands Preserve
North Neck, narrow and tall, rises out of the Nantucket Sound and Cape Poge Pond. From its heights, you can see the region’s geography: the curve of the Cape Poge Elbow, the Vineyard’s east shore and the far-off islands of Nantucket County. Two beaches are visible: Cape Poge Gut and Cape Poge Pond beach. This land is a fallout site for tired birds and butterflies migrating south across the sound, affording excellent wildlife viewing
