Had a wonderful, peaceful walk at Cedar Neck and the beach all to ourselves when we arrived there! Heard many birds through the changing vegetation and enjoyed the varied, beautiful rocks on the beach.

Getting there can be a challenge but follow the green signs that say sanctuary and you won't have too much of a problem--a 4WD vehicle isn't necessary but it might make you feel better; however, once you get there, there are multiple paths you can...More

A bunch of us decided to do this hike with our two dogs, a Boston Terrier and a Golden Retriever. The walk was pleasant and in no time we were on the beach, where we strolled a bit, then resumed the path, re-entering the circuit...More

This slice of beach with rugged trails and cliff view of The Elizabeth Islands is a must. One of my three favorite dirt trails on MV. Maybe best in Fall

This hard to find beach is incredible. The walk is 15-20 minutes from the road along a jungle-like path but when you get to the beach, it opens up. There is a beautiful high point which overlooks the beach below and a sea of poison...More

If you want to explore a part of Martha's Vineyard known primarily to local people like myself, this is it. It's a beautiful area along the north shore, surprisingly remote, with lovely vistas. Don't let the long downhill dirt road put you off: you will...More

Cedar Tree Neck Sanctuary is located in the NW of MV in West Tisbury. It's spectacular and a gem as others relate here. But your map link for Cedar Tree Neck Sanctuary is to a location about 1-2 miles south of Oak Bluffs in NE...More

Great spot. Easy walk and a spectacular view when you come near the beach. A beautiful pond on your right as you walk through the dunes to the beach. Turn right and go about 100 yards and do the Headlands loop. Easy and really cool....More
