Winter hiking around the Island

Now through early spring, the Island’s conservation properties offer much to appreciate. Expansive views through the leafless branches, solitude on the trails, and fewer ticks too. Even on a beautiful weekend day, most parking areas have plenty of room. The all-new TrailsMV mobile app includes more than 100 properties and 220+ miles of trails across the Island landscape, along with listings of nature-related events and activities. Get outside and start exploring!

See detailed information from Trails MV and the All-Island Trails Committee.
