Walkers, Upper and Lower Mill Ponds, Brewster
Directions to the Launch: Upper Mill Pond is accessible through the town owned Punkhorn Park lands which can be reached from Route 6A by taking Stony Brook Road to Run Hill Road and following it 1¼ miles to the conservation area. Kayaks are available for rental from the town, during the summer.
This trip is about 4 miles. The trip involves circumnavigating three kettle ponds.
Launch from the Punkhorn Conservation parklands beach on the northeast side of Upper Mill Pond, turn left and paddle to a short cut over sand to the east side of Walkers Pond. Circumnavigate Walker’s pond, and then return to Upper Mill Pond. Continue around the pond to a shallow creek about a tenth of a mile long. (You may have to drag kayaks along this stretch at low water). From here you can reach the grist mill at the north end of Lower Mill Pond.
