Land Bank's Annual Cross-Island Hike

Each year since 1993, the Martha's Vineyard Land Bank has observed National Trails Day — the first Saturday of June — by conducting a day-long hike across the island to expose people to the network of trails that connect the Island’s many conservation lands and public properties. Usually the hike will include sections along dirt or paved roads, but sometimes may include shorelines, steep grades and sections of overgrown vegetation (possibly including poison ivy). Hikes sometimes include stretches across private properties with the generous permission of the owners for the day of the hike only.

This is a day-long, guided hike that differs each year and is ordinarily less than 20 miles in length and most participants elect to walk only a portion of the hike’s route, using the itinerary times and information provided on this website to plan their personal starting and ending points. This year, the hike will begin from the shoreline of Hillmans Point Preserve and conclude at Chilmark Pond Preserve. The starting point is across Lake Tashmoo from Tashmoo Beach.
