This reservation is named for a huge glacial boulder that once served as a benchmark for establishing the boundary between lands of the native Wampanoags and property claimed by English settlers. Many trails, generally in the form of three loops, crisscross the hilly terrain, which is divided between woodland and meadow. Note: Trail names (colors) on the latest Land Bank map may not correspond in all cases to signage or to names on older maps.

Hike that gives one an interesting look at the Island's interior. We entered at the parking area, and once on the trail, took our first left along a brook and with a mild climb came to Waskosim's Rock. Some nice overlooks along the soft and generally well-marked trails. Far off views of Vineyard Sound. We looped back along the trails and without using a map, were able to easily return to the parking lot after about an hour and a half.
