This sublime walk traces the west bank of the Mashpee River, a scenic waterway linking Mashpee Pond with Popponesset Bay. Several agencies—The Trustees of Reservations, the Town of Mashpee, Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Council, Inc., and the Orenda Wildlife Land Trust—have joined together to protect both sides of the river and the adjacent woodlands; trail systems provide public access to each side. The Cape Cod Pathways map includes a trail guide with numbered stops, but there are no numbered markers along the trail. Some of the trails are marked with Cape Cod Pathways signs and are relatively well maintained; others (not used in the walk described below) are nearly impassible because of vegetation.
