A narrow cove in Chilmark Lower Pond leads to Doctor’s Creek, which snakes its way through dense marsh grass to Chilmark Upper Pond, where yet another cove awaits exploration. Swimming is nearby at a Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank-owned section of spectacular Hancock Beach. The depth of this freshwater pond varies depending on when an opening has been cut in the barrier beach. if you visit in May or early June, right after the opening of the pond to the ocean, you will find a much shallower pond than in late summer.
