This walk takes you to one of the highest spots on the island, through some interesting and beautiful landscape. The high points are great views of the ocean from at least two spots. We encountered only one other person when we were there.

This fairly easy walk (but with some substance and route options) offered wonderful birdlife, varying vegetation, a few points to admire ocean views, and an access to a rocky beach at the end. Highly recommended property owned by Trustees of Reservations!

This was a wonderful trail. Not steep and very beautiful views. The small sign to the parking lot was too high for a driver to see and was hidden behind trees and bushes. The trail had some signage, but could have used more. Sometimes it...More

So many beautiful sights our Martha's Vineyard guide introduced us to during our tour of the island, plus the tip for getting the best souvenir purchases at the best prices!

From the woods trail to the beach, this TTOR property features some of the best of the Vineyard's views. Wildflowers and birdlife can distract you from the trail; watch out for poison ivy, and check for ticks after you leave! The beach is very rocky...More

This was a nice easy hike. We actually pushed a stroller thru most of it and then carried our 2 yr old the last little bit to the top. The view at prospect hill is nice but is somewhat marred by the trees. We did...More

We took the Island Bus and the friendly driver dropped us off at the small dirt road entrance marked only by a small green sign. There was a short walk to the parking area which has a porta-potty. We brought our own water. This was...More

Amazing sunset. Unique and stands by itself. Arrived at the last few minutes before sunset, parked illegally and ended up mistakenly walking the fishing wharf (stank!) to the rocks and sunset. View is just as special as Phnom Bakheng if look from among the boats...More

This hike would be excellent, except for the ticks and the poison ivy. Even if you stay on the trail, keep a sharp eye out for the poison ivy. This hike also has the dubious distinction of being the one that we gathered the most...More
