Description

Just a short walk from the trailhead, the oaks part and grasslands slope down to Poucha Pond. The marsh is a good place to spot herons and egrets feeding. Views of the Nantucket Sound and Nantucket Islands are visible to the east. Local farmers used the marsh here for harvesting salt hay for bedding and mulch, which was valuable because it contained no weed seeds.

Off the Wasque Road, near Wasque Point.
