Falmouth, MA 02540
Join The 300 Committee to discover the headwaters of the Coonamessett River, and the man-made “Dutchman’s Ditch” that connects the river to Coonamessett Pond. Special features of this walk at Matthew Souza Conservation Area include cranberry bogs, an unpaved, level road that leads to the shore of Coonamessett Pond, a herring run that follows the road and ends in a weir at the pond, and a foot path that winds through a stand of tall pines.
Park at the upper bogs in large, unpaved lot off Hatchville Road, just east of Turner Road intersection and opposite the entrance to Matt Souza Conservation Area. No dogs, please.
