Located right off Edgartown-Vineyard Have Rd, Felix Neck has a number of great nature walks with scenic views of ponds, marshes, and beaches. Plenty of well-marked, well-maintained trails with a variety of views and lengths. Mostly flat trails, suitable for jogging strollers.

Hiking through the Felix Neck Sanctuary was one of the most memorable mornings of our vacation. The trails are wide and rolling - no steep hikes here. Depending on what trails you hike, you'll go through forest, beaches and a salt marsh. Try to walk them all if you can.. We saw swans and their cygnets on the pond, beautiful... More

Rent a Kayak or canoe and you can spend hours exploring the beautiful (and huge) tidal pond. Its a great way to spend a day while spending almost no money (a rarity on the Vinyard)! Just a really beautiful place.

This was a first for me..guide was excellent and taught me a lot about the area. A bit cloudy that night so moon was hazy, but sunset gorgeous and a serene time on the water.

We are a family of five with a 5, 4, and 2-year-old. We took a week-long vacation to The Cape, and spent a day at The Vineyard. I had done some advance research and found the Seashore Discovery program at Felix Neck - it looked like a great deal for the kids. I am so glad that we went. After... More

The Mass Audubon outpost on the island offers great activities to keep children busy while learning about nature. Varied setting of pond, marsh, woods all teeming with wildlife of various sorts. A good place for a walk, too.

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.
