I've been coming here since I was young. The trails are gorgeous and well maintained. Well worth a visit!

Don't miss this unique place while on Martha's Vineyard. It is a wonderful place for a walk in the woods, observation of all sorts of birds and other wide life and a view of an exquisite butterfly garden filed with many flowers. The staff is well trained and totally dedicated to preservation of the environment. They are particularly good with... More

This Audubon preserve is well staffed and maintained. In this fairly small area there are many habitats and trails. One can kayak, and birdwatch.

You might not want to spend every day at the beach, and Felix Neck gives you a great alternative. Learn about the local wildlife in a beautiful surrounding and walk away feeling like a more aware and well-rounded person, and more fully connected to the the Vineyard. This place is a jewel.

Helpful staff in the information center. Great beach along the trail. A little tough to follow the map

run by great people. We went twice, a return after a dusk stroll around the place for a morning bird watch. It was a great way to get oriented and see a different part of the Vineyard experience. these people are quite thoughtful as they provided options in their shoppe for insect repellant that was quite economical, provided filed glasses...

I'm so glad we chose to pack insect repellant and ignore the mosquito warnings. August 22nd got us a perfect hike with wonderful views of ocean, marsh, barn owls on live cam, bayberries, unfamiliar wildflowers, osprey, and a picture-book butterfly garden. There is a boardwalk across "Turtle Pond". No turtles were out on our hike but there was a lovely... More

Felix Neck is a wonderful place to explore the woods, a duck pond, salt marsh, and the tidal pond of Sengecontacket. It is well laid out with clearly marked trails. The trails are accommodating for even the smallest of hikers. There is wonderful birdwatching, and we have spied many other kinds of animals there as well. Early in thhe day,... More

This place is beautiful and even better, is set up to educate rather than intimidate. We were able to see tons of birds this weekend and our non-birding friends got a great introduction to birding without even trying. The staff loans binoculars (honor system) and was able to point out the best places to try and see things. In addition,... More

We went late in the season. Well laid out and lots of fun things to do there with kayaking and good walks. Good bird watching but that's not my thing.
