Stay Safe and Healthy on Island Trails

Martha’s Vineyard has a rich abundance of protected lands. Many remain open for walking, hiking, bicycling, and running, in strict accordance with state and local regulations. Heading into the winter months, the Island’s conservation groups continue to manage some properties differently to help ensure public safety and lower the risks of coronavirus transmission.

Winter hunting alert! Deer season is over, but hunting of other game is allowed in many areas. Please see detailed guidelines for each organization here.
