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 now and not easily traversed, as noted by other reviewers. It is still one of... 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 not walk to the other viewpoints so I can't comment on them.

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 a pleasant walk mostly through tree lined loop path which takes you to a wooden... 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 on the fish dock.

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 ticks on. All that being said, it was worth it, as this was one of... More

Great moderate hike by East Coast standards; Californians will find it easy. Either way, lovely sea views and forest paths. Charming wildflowers in bright colors all over the beach in early June. The path at the peak is not as well marked as it could be; we accidentally detoured onto what turned out to be tractor tracks and wood chips... More

Went on a beautiful walk to overtake my wife's Fitbit steps. Accomplished that and found a new spectacular view but would like to warn everyone about a section. When you walk, you will cross a road. About 200 yards after you cross you come to a loop. I usually go right as it is shorter to the platform (with the... More

While the guide books tell you that there are many places to hike on Martha s Vinyard what they don't tell you is that almost all these places are either hard to get to, require a hike to get to, or require a huge hike to get to. Menemsha Hills, which is a TTOR property took only three buses from... More

Grab some really fresh fish lobster roll sandwiches from the local fish markets and a blanket and enjoy the sunset. Worth the drive very cool little town

I love the opportunity to walk through the woods on the mostly well kept trails, although be aware as the summer progresses the poison ivy can get ahead of the mowing crews. Your reward at the end of trails is arriving at the beach or up at the overlook. Now The Trustees have embarked on a clearing project with the... More
