About Old Comers Woodland Conservation Area
Purchased by the town in 1999, in part with Land Bank funds, this property is diversely vegetated with a mix of upland and wetland species. Two trail entrances to this property are located off Old Comers Road. The 11.3 acre conservation land contains an approximately 1-mile loop trail and a small spur trail that leads visitors to Lover’s Lake, Chatham’s only river herring spawning area. Portions of the trail are steep and may be difficult to traverse. Tall antennas formerly used for intercontinental wireless transmissions in the early 1900’s can still be seen throughout the property. To learn more about the history of the property visit the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center located across from Ryder’s Cove on MA-28.

Visitors can park along Old Comers Road near the property entrance sign
