Trustees of Reservations
July 6, 2015


We have some good news for beach-goers and fishermen! As of this morning, The Trustees have reopened OSV access to most of Leland Beach, Wasque Point and the eastern half of Norton Point Beach. The plover chicks have successfully fledged in this area!

Access around the outside beach on the southern end of Leland Beach is still closed due to severe erosion of the trail, but vehicles can access Wasque Point via the inside Leland Beach trails. As well, the OSV trail from the Cedars to Arruda Point is reopened.

NOTE: There is still no through traffic allowed between Katama and Chappy via Norton Point Beach due to the presence of plover chicks in the middle of the beach.

The Cape Pogue Gut is still closed to OSV's due to the presence of unfledged plover and tern chicks. We also caution drivers to use care when driving from Wasque onto the eastern end of Norton Point from the Chappy side. Extreme high tides are causing some overwashing in the area. Don't park on the narrow travel corridor--you may find your vehicle surrounded by water at high tide!

Thanks for your support and understanding during the recent shorebird closures!
