Sold Out: Brickyard Open House Hike

Discover The Trustees Martha’s Vineyard’s newest trail and reservation- The Brickyard.

In the 1860s, brick workers mined the north shore’s rocky landscape for clay. Using Island-harvested trees and the waters of Roaring Brook to power their operation, over 800,000 bricks a year were shipped off-island to be used in contruction projects from Boston to Newport to New York.

Spend your Sunday afternoon with a guided hike to the historic remnants of the brickworks, including its iconic 45-foot chimney and 10-foot high cut-stone walls during this special open-house tour. You’ll set off from Menemsha Hills with a nature guide and meet Martha’s Vineyard Stewardship Manager David Bouck and Islands Director Sam Hart on-site for a special Q&A.

Masks and physical distancing at all times. Registration required;limited capacity. Please meet at Menemsha Hills parking lot for 11AM program start.

Please note: trail follows uneven terrain on the way down, followed by a strenuous uphill hike on the way back.
