An easement cannot be used to reach land to which it is not appurtenant

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has held that an easement cannot be extended even for a short way to access land to which it is not appurtenant. When an easement is created to enable access to a particular parcel of land, it can be used only for that purpose and not to access other parcels of land even if continguous. Taylor v. Martha's Vineyard Land Bank Comm'n, 60 N.E>3d 319 (Mass. 2016).
