Blackwater Pond Reservation and Wompesket Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Martha’s Vineyard Land Bank recently cut trails through Blackwater Pond reservation and it’s a fabulous addition to Vineyard conservation land. The paths wind around five different ponds, offering a variety of views. The reservation conveniently connects to Wompesket Preserve, a small but topographically interesting property that had been difficult to access.

From the parking lot, walk by Northern Duarte’s Pond. During one of my visits two young boys were fishing from the wharf. They already had caught six trout. I could not imagine how fish arrived at this land-locked pond. I later learned that each spring the pond is stocked with trout in preparation for the annual Children’s Fishing Derby. Boating is also allowed so you can bring your kayak, launch it from the dock, and paddle around."
