CANCELED - Sunday, July 20 - Walk Punkhorn Parklands, Brewster


We'll leave from the Punkhorn Parklands parking lot at the end of Run Hill Road and walk south on an unpaved road, Westgate Road,
for 0.5 mile to a wide woods road on the left heading southeast.  This is Punkhorn Road, marked with a hand-painted sign.  The plan is to walk southeast on Punkhorn Rd. for 0.75 mile, crossing Eastgate Road, another unpaved road. At that point, there is a  sharp intersection, where a woods road comes in from the left.  We'll walk north on it, passing a few summer
houses on the shore of Seymour Pond and continue past an abandoned cranberry bog to a high knob.  From there, we'll make a group decision to either continue or maybe backtrack to our cars.

I have only  walked this area three times. This is a HUGE area and one can easily get lost. It's like Bell's Neck or Hawksnest, where you can stay on dirt roads and be surrounded by deep woods.  Unlike Bell's Neck, there are almost no cars on these roads, so dogs can safely run off leash.

The plan is to stay 100% on dirt roads so that people and dogs can avoid tick habitat. Punkhorn, in the past, has had the highest density of deer ticks on Cape Cod. There is a place where the dogs can get in the water to cool off....pictured above. Or, if it is hot, they can walk by the sign that says NO DOGS and get wet at the end of the boat ramp before the walk.

DIRECTIONS: Heading west on 6A in Brewster, pass Tubman on your left, then take a left fork OFF 6A onto Stoney Brook. Pass Paines Creek Rd, then take left onto Run Hill. Drive to the end.

Heading east on 6A, take right on Stoney Brook Rd. Pass Setucket/Satucket that comes in on your right.. take the next right onto Run Hill Rd. Go to the end.

Guests are welcome if they like dogs off leash.
