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 spring, the Island’s conservation groups continue to manage some properties differently to help ensure public safety and lower the risks of coronavirus transmission.

Please see detailed guidelines for each organization here.
