Bowditch Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A remote circuit, this hike provides plenty of solitude as you climb the wooded summit of Bowditch Mountain and skirt the western shore of 6,300-foot-long Long Pond, the only freshwater pond on the island. There are no expansive views along wooded Bowditch Trail, but the path is fresh and not trampled. It’s full of rich green moss and ferns and blooming with rhodora, sheep laurel, and tiny white star flowers in spring. Reach the trailhead after a total 1.7-mile hike from town landing, first 0.3 mile on the paved road, and then 1.4 miles on the Duck Harbor Trail."
