Description

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; Brine’s Pond itself, which hosts an island of Beetlebung trees; and the farm opposite the pond, where rows of summer vegetables follow the contours of the fields.

The name “Chappaquiddick” derives from the Algonquin name Tchepi-cquiden-et, which translates into “the separate island”. Turn right off the Chappaquiddick Road 1.7 miles past the ferry slip. Trailhead and parking are shared with the Community Center. Bicycle rack is just up the road on the right near the pond.
