Description

A pocket of pastoral land with sloping grasslands, salt marsh, and a freshwater pond. Enjoy views of Felix Neck on the opposite shore, long-distance views of Cape Poge, and the thick patch of switchgrass near the water’s edge. Rare plants include eastern gama-grass. The name Pecoy is derived from the Algonquin word "pohqu-auk" which means “open land” or “land naturally fit and clear for cultivation.”

From the intersection of County and VH-Edgartown Roads, go 0.9 miles on County Road. Turn right onto the Pulpit Rock Road. 0.3 miles down, there are 2 dirt roads on right. Take the second road that's marked by a Land Bank sign. The trailhead is at the end of the road.
